I have loved the look of Batik fabric ever since I first learned how to create it in a Junior High School art class. Other's have introduced faux versions for Batik effect. None of these versions captured the effect to my satisfaction. After many experiments,I eventually achieved a technique that captured the look I wanted. I hope you'll agree. This technique was used to create the pattern on the star and is available in "The Complete Book of Polymer Clay." SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS Crystal Pearls attached with sterling silver ball pins, jut out from the corners of the star. The center is highlighted with a crystal chaton. A crackled jelly roll cane in complimentary colors was used to create the lid's border.
