New pendants, old media- and cross stich fabric isn’t just for stiching
Here’s what was on my table this weekend. I made a whopping huge bunch of molds out of my own carvings last year, and some of them did become ceramic beads. But in my move, my kiln, well, I think it’s busted. At least, I’m too scared to plug it in. So I decided to make the pendants in polymer clay and see how they turn out. Plus, I had been wanting to do a more in depth experiment with my Martha Stewart glass paint in translucent frost- mixed with alcohol inks and re-inkers.
The paint is really cool, it has some toothy scruff to it and it takes the ink really well. So instead of buying all the colors, I just mix little bits at a time- one drop of ink goes a long way when you are making translucent paint.
Here they are, there are still some finishing touches- such as, I’ll be soldering them. Yes- you read that right. With a little care and practice, you can solder a polymer clay pendant.
And I have big plans for that Aida cloth- it’s a beautiful linen color and I’m going to sew myself an ipad pouch, after I get out my paints and paint it and sew stuff on it first. THEN I’ll make it into a purse
