Sandrartes, a Portuguese polymer clay artist has a couple of clever tutorials. She shows how toilet paper can be used to make hollow polymer clay jewelry. The polymer clay is wrapped around a toilet paper form. After baking, the toilet paper is easily removed by immersing the piece in water.
Her polymer clay bangle tutorial starts with the wrapping of strips of toilet paper over a simple wire form. I love how she edged the petals with extruded clay!
The hollow heart pendant is created by wadding toilet paper into the appropriate shape. I wonder if a little string could be used to get the shape right. The final finish with metal foil is wonderful.
Naturally I am now wondering if we can use toilet paper forms to make hollow wire forms. Wire workers might remember the clever sugar cube trick created by Lisa van Herik which does the same thing as toilet paper!
