Three years ago I went to Italy with three friends to take polymer clay jewelry classes with Louise Fisher Cozzi and Donna Kato. We had so much fun!
Louise taught us how to achieve an amazing technique to give polymer clay layers of color. She uses translucent polymer clay and colors it with oil paint. After it's cured, she adds more oil paint on top of that. After that's dry, she uses color pencils to give the piece another layer of fabulous color.
Continue to condition until the clay is a uniform color. It helps to have a piece of the candy corn to look at while you're tinting the clay. Be sure to add only a dab of paint each time, and do the yellow before the orange. It's okay to get yellow paint on your orange clay, but not okay to get orange paint on your yellow clay.
The orange roll will be the largest, the yellow is half as large as the orange and the white roll is half as large as the yellow. Lay the rolls side by side and slice evenly. Begin by rolling the white piece into a cone, the orange piece an egg shape and the yellow piece into a slightly flattened oval.
Gently roll the pieces until the all edges touch and it looks like a continuous cone shape.
Flatten the cone shape slightly. It's a good idea to have that candy corn to look at for dimension.
