Faux Sea Glass

Faux Sea Glass

Create imitation sea glass with this easy process that uses oven-bake clay and alcohol-based ink. Make beads for jewelry (a great gift!) or display your sea glass pieces in a bowl.

    1. Knead a small amount of transluscent Premo! Sculpey until it is soft. Choose a color of Spectrum Noir Alcohol Ink and add a small drop to the Sculpey. Wipe off any excess ink and allow it to dry.

    3. Roll each piece of clay into a ball. Then, using a flat ceramic tool, flatten the sides of each ball into an interesting shape. Make some pieces flat and some chunky, keeping in mind how real sea glass looks.
