i use polymer jade a lot in my work. you may remember that i had run out of fimo 00 and had to take a blechy trip to the suburbs to get some more. i usually mix in a bit of sculpey leaf green and orange to get the colors that i like. after baking, the green clay will have light discolorations that gives the jade its depth. here is one book in which i used the jade.
this picture shows the detail better with the variations in color.
i created a ton of jade with my new fimo 00. as i was working i ran out of leaf green but did have some moss, which was more the color i was after. the first thing i noticed was how much less saturated the moss was than the leaf green. i had to add a lot more moss to get the color i wanted. after i made this book, i was disappointed to find that all the jade was a uniform color. mixing in so much more opaque clay ruined the plaquing effect. :( it looks ok, but not what i wanted.
now i want to use the jade for the new celtic book i've been creating. i really want those discolored plaques but i am once again out of fimo 00. if i remember correctly, one of the sheets of clay i made used the leaf green. i'm hoping that's right because i used the leaf green on the surface of the cover and the moss green for the extra layers of thickness. i hope it works.
i need to order more clay!!
