Veneers are a staple in polymer clay creations. I use veneers ALL the time. It is basically a decorative sheet of clay. It could be a sheet with a surface treatment (for example, silk screened or alcohol inks), a pattern of cane slices pieced together or a mokume gane slice. But it can also be simple . . . . I mean really simple. Let me show you what I mean.
So a veneer in polymer clay is pretty common and I am sure you have already worked with them in some way. But are there any limitations when working with veneers? Well that depends, for example:
If your veneer has texture, you don’t want to burnish it and smooth out the texture.
If your veneer has a delicate surface treatment you may be limited in the way you can manipulate it onto a complex three-dimensional surface.
This just means we might have to be more creative when applying our veneers. Now it is your turn, go ahead and play with some veneers! The possibilities are endless!!
