Not material again! Nope this brocade is very different. It is made from polymer clay. I had a piece of embellished wools that had a couple of contrasting threads embellished on it, and I thought it would be great to use it for a book cover if I could get the brocade right!
It is actually fairly easy to do. You need to get your clay conditioned ' and roll out with a pasta machine or the Wizard will work if you don't have a pasta machine. Paint clay with a metallic paint very thinly. Allow paint to dry and paint again very thinly. Do this 4 or 5 times . Dust your chosen stamp and impress into the clay, roll it once with a rolling pin. Now add another colour or two to the raised image and roll flat. Cook according to directions on the clay packet. A melt pot works brilliantly ;)
My book cover was made using my clay piece and on the back I stamped and embossed the same stamp.
