I love this easy way to get a watercolor effect for a polymer clay and metal cuff bracelet.  Actually the whole DIY is pretty easy. The tutorial is by Glora Uhler of Domestic Diva Online.  The key ingredient is the use of alcohol inks. She says it is a lot of fun and I can see why!

I would have sprayed alcohol inks directly onto the clay. But what Gloria does is ingenious. She actually sprays the inks onto a ceramic tile. The clay strip is either pressed onto it to take up color. Or the ink is transferred from the tile with gloved fingers.

She added some gold ink with a brush at the end for an "impressionist" effect.  But you could also consider using stamps and inks for more defined patterns.

You can even make alcohol inks yourself (see first link below) or buy them.
