Color mixing was never easier or more fascinating. We'll focus on using the "Skinner Blend" method of mixing polymer clay. This clever technique results in a beautiful range of hues which will then be cut and cured. Finally, the shapes will be assembled into a light-weight and lovely necklace using a simple using lacing pattern. This is a great way to practice the "Skinner Blend" and take home a finished piece of jewelry!
