In an earlier post I showed you how to use Polymer Clay to create a Mandala. We all know there is often more than one way of doing something. In this post I will show how to make a mandala using polymer clay and a new technique.
1. Sculpey Silicone Mold
2. Pasta Machine
3. Acrylic Roller
4. Polymer Clay (your color of choice)
5. Cutting Blade
(supplies not pictured)
1. Cling Wrap
2. Round cutter
Let’s Get Started
In this tutorial I’ll be using purple and lavender Sculpey polymer clay.
I rolled both pieces out with my pasta machine. The darker of the two I rolled out on the third setting and the lighter is rolled using the thickest (number 1) setting.
I placed the purple clay onto the Sculpey mold and used the roller to begin pressing the clay into the mold. Placing cling wrap over the clay prevents it from sticking to the acrylic roller. Then I just used my fingers to press the clay into the mold.
Using the cutting blade I shave the excess clay off of the mold. I place it over a water bottle but this didn’t necessarily make this process any easier. I had a little trial and error doing this. Not using the water bottle was easier for me.
Placed the lavender clay over the mold. Again I am using the cling wrap to avoid the clay from sticking to the roller.
This is the best part! I then removed the clay from the mold very carefully.
I love how much little time it takes to get such fantastic results.
Using the round cutter I place it over the mandala and make the cut.
There it is! A beautiful Mandala!
