Making more Art Beads...
I am playing around with crackle texture
on polymer clay...
I dug around in the cupboard and found
3 different brands of crackle medium:
The Delta brand in the center of the image
made the largest crackles.
All 3 brands worked equally well.
I hand shaped the hearts from polymer clay
then baked them
then painted them with acrylic paint...
Then the crackle medium was applied
over the dry paint.
The crackle happens as the medium dries.
They have been glazed and are ready
to be put into a piece of jewelry.
I had so much fun creating these
grunge house beads:
I am creating jewelry with them today
so I will post images soon!
Owl beads.....hard to resist:
Owl beads.....fresh from the oven
Hand-shaped Owl Beads
I use acrylic paint to highlight their feathers...
The paint reminds me of shaving cream
when a man is shaving his face!
I immediately wipe off the paint...
it remains in the recesses of the feathers.
The next step is to glaze these:
I am thinking these will make
awful sweet bracelets.
