It appears she has used alcohol inks in this pendant.
I love the textures that nature offers and am often inspired by them so when I found this tutorial by Russian artist Julia Titova I just had to share.
The best I can tell (using google translate since originally it was written in Russian) is that she is using air dry clay to make the relief of the flowers both fresh and dried and then makes the pendants reinforcing it with resin. You could also use polymer clay or silicone mold making kits for a more stable longer lasting mold.
After the mold base has been made she then makes the relief imprint, and adds color in the form of, my personal favorites, alcohol inks or thinned acrylic paints.
And finally she then adds a layer of resin to offer a tremendous depth to the piece. My personal favorite resins are Lisa Pavelkas’ Magic Glos, and Ice Resin.
For me, this is just another excuse to play with nature and of course alcohol inks.

Christi Friesen is always full of fun new project and ideas. I found this one and wanted to share. I need a bracelet to match a new summer outfit so why not! If you decide to give it a try share your results on my FB page.
Christi uses the following products (along with a few others) in her tutorial: her stamp called Relaxed Grandeur, Premo Accents in Purple Pearl, Surface FX powder in Tide Pool, and her Pretty Darn Nifty tool. All of these are available at Linda’s Art Spot. If you would like to do something a little different from the tutorial, I have a large selection of Christi’s stamps, powders and more to choose from.
