Polymer Clay Skinner Blend Technique

Hello Crafty Friends

I'm back with a fun Polymer Clay Technique called The Skinner Blend.. Its a coolest polymer ckay technique. In this you can blend polymer clay in beautiful blend that shifts from one color to another. And you can do this with 2 colors and more than two. Today I will show how to made graduated blends using 2 different colors, black and white.

There are different ways to make skinner blend and I'm gonna use the simple method that gives smoother results, that is to use pasta machine for skinner blend.






You will see biggest effect if you use 2 colors with contrast in them. If you use colors that are close to each other, you may not see the shift as clearly, but it will be there.. You always get pretty blends while using skinner blend technique.






Start with 2 sheets of clay, cut them in equal size rectangle and them cut them diagonally to make triangles.. Then put them together to make rectangle with white on one side of the rectangle and black on the other side..
Then you have to keep rolling the sheet in the pasta machine on the thickest setting.. Every time the clay comes out of the machine, fold it in half and roll again.. You will start to see difference in color after few rolls.. For a perfect blend, you may need to roll the sheet around 20 to 40 times in the pasta machine.
As you get close, you will see the colors mixing and once you achieve a perfect graduated blend, you are done.. Its that simple..
When doing this you will get a graduated blend from dark grey to light grey.. You dont get any black or white sheet of clay.. Thats because the black is mixed with white and vice versa on either side..






To get the original colors on the skinner blend, you have to use a off-set skinner blend technique.. For this, while cutting the triangle, off set a little bit, so instead of cutting corner to corner, off d=set and cut a little bit towards righton top and left on bottom.. This makes sure that there is little white and black clay on each side, making sure they do not mix. And then roll the sheet in the pasta machine.. Fold and roll, fold and roll, fold and roll.. Continue until you have a perfect skinner blend..
