The 4th experiment Tute

Okay here is the 4th experiment! Coloring the standard gold metallic clay to make other metallic colors. I am going to do few so hang in there! This is using Piñata inks because they dry on the surface of the clay rapidly. I have great luck with these inks and I need for them to be completely alcohol based only, nothing that extends working time in a ink is going to work the same way as these. Some of the current inks on the market are using these additives now. They are wonderful for other applications, but in my opinion, not so much for these ones coming up. I want it to dry fast so I can mix it in and I don’t have all over me, all my tools, pasta machine, and work surface. Cover the surface of the gold metallic raw clay 2”x 2” tile! Roll out on thickest setting in pasta machine. Cover each square clay tile with ink on surface dry. #Cernit

#CernitThis is using Piñata inks because they dry on the surface of the clay rapidly.

I have great luck with these inks and I need them to be alcohol based only, nothing that extends working time.

Some of the current inks on the market are using different additives now to extend the working time.

I want it dry fast so I can mix it in and I don’t have all over me, all my tools, pasta machine, and work surface.

Cover the surface of the gold metallic raw clay 2”x 2” tile! Roll out on thickest setting in pasta machine.

Cover each square clay tile with ink on surface, let dry.Here I have covered the Gold metallic 2”x2” tile with Lime Green Piñata and the one on the left with Baja blue Piñata ink.

It took about ten minutes to dry on a pouring rain day where I live.

But depending on your climate and ambient temp it could take up to a half and hour (in my experience), to let it dry enough to work with.

If you leave like this more than a day or two with out mixing in, the ink could be rehydrated and become sticky again, just so you know.

I use and mix everything I do with ink as fast as I can.

When mixing colors with alcohol ink, try not to make more color than you need because the alcohol tends dry and keep drying the raw clay out more and more.

I have placed my finger on the lime green Piñata to see if it comes back on my finger. It does a little here, I waited a little longer at that point.

There is definitely a difference in the way the ink looks on the clay after drying. See if you notice that difference. That way you will have an idea of when they are dry enough.

Fold the clay sheet in half when the ink is dry enough! Mix in ink to change the color.

Here is another experiment using a similar sheet of a lime green (new) translucent color to the gold metallic.

Here you can see the result of the lime green translucent above the sheet in my hand. That one is the Baja Blue Piñata sheet.

And the sheet t the right of my hand is Lime Green Piñata ink, it is darker than the translucent clay sheet.

Now mix in the Baja Blue ink!

Oh this is something I love a lot about this mixing ink thing and will stop here with my sheet sometimes for another ink crackle technique. to use with the rest of my veneers.

You might find this a lot of fun as well.

This will work with all the metallic colors and looks great.

Here are the things I have mixed in. All sheets are completely cured!

Out of all my experiments here, this one is my favorite! Baja Blue Piñata.

We do carry this product as well, it can be purchased through all of our stores. We do combine orders from all of our on line stores.

Look at the reflection! ❤️

I just love greens I think! Lol!

The lime green Piñata is a little more subtle. You could also add more ink to the sheet and mix that in also for a darker version of this one.

This one was a little weak to me, but I loved every the way it looks.

I think I could all the way up to a 3 to get me mix on this one.

3 parts Translucent lime green to 1 part of gold metallic! I will try and remember to do it later.

This is the translucent lime green and gold metallic! This works for me even though is subtle and looks slightly brassy, but this technique shows off the color well. So really, nothing is a mistake!

And here is straight gold with a small ripple cut design in it.

But you can see how it compares to the other mixed colors here!

*oh and on a side note, I bake all of my pieces in a home oven, on a a cardboard box piece on my tray and tented with foil, in a pre-heated 275 F degree oven for 40 minutes. I then remove hot from the oven and plunge in to icy cold water until the pieces are completely cool!
