Hi, long time clayer, first time poster. I wanted to share a quick tip for making lapis. I got Premo blue granite, added a little gold leaf and it makes very realistic lapis.

Welcome to PCC! That sounds great! I just found two lapis rocks that I didn't know I had (inherited from my older sister) and they are just beautiful. Hmmmm, maybe will consider making some faux lapis that looks the same. :)

i love lapis. have been trying to get the look, but it was missing something. the blue granite is perfect. i noticed that i needed mor gold than i thought. and add it twards the end of the process so it gets broken up, but not disapear . i made a cool gear pendant accented with lapis. got to get a pic. it is steampunk inspired and it will be one of my swap pendants.

Oh yeah! We definitely want to see a photo. It sounds cool!! What swap?

You'll have to let us know at what point you used the gold leaf and how much you needed. Then we'll see tons of lapis lazuli pieces around here! :)
