I’ve finally found more time to get into my studio and start playing with clay again. I found myself wanting to paint and wanting to make new beads, so I decided to mix the two.
These beads are a work in progress- a mix of polymer clay, watercolors, alcohol ink, vinegar, baking soda, UV light (and sunshine!), different finishing agents, resist materials…. I’m trying to figure out how to get the color to stay and how to glaze the beads without ruining the patterns the inks/paints/natural ingredients made on the clay.
Anyway, here’s the first of my experiments.
