MICA SHIFT!

by Carissa Nichols - So what is this 'Mica Shift' everyone is talking about? Well, anyone who's seen translucent Premo or Fimo has seen what polymer clay looks like in its 'natural state'. During the manufacturing process, pigments are added to color the clay. Sometimes an additional ingredient, mica, is also added. Mica is what makes the gold, pearl, colored pearls, copper and silver colors that are so popular.
Mica is a naturally occurring stone that forms in thin crystalline wafers. It is very soft and can be pulled apart with your fingertips. Egyptian, Greek and Roman women used ground up mica in their make-up to impart a 'glow' to their skin because even when ground to a powder, mica's crystalline structure allows it to reflect light.

Keith Brown from Canespinnerdesigns.com

Keith has a B.S. degree in Chemistry, he saw candles sold during the holidays that were decorated with millefiore designs, and since some of his drawings were symmetrical, mandala-like patterns resembling the designs on the candles, he became interested in how the designs were made. it was it was around 1996-98 he started to learn the polymer clay subject.

You must see James Lehman site! it's pure joy!

He spent his early years fascinated with model rockets and at the age of 19, James began work on what would become a CD collection of 22 songs written.

1993 was the first time that James worked with polymer clay. He made craft beads and developed a technique for making large designs in flat sheets of clay.

His gallery is so big, you can sit for hours, forget about lunch cooking and see every creation from every angle!
