Summer holidays gave me a chance to get out the polymer clay, and try to recall some of the techniques I learned at CFCF early last year. I used Sarah Shriver’s reverse inlay technique for the white spotted bead, Lindly’s sandpaper texture for the round beads (not enough color to incorporate Lindly’s other techniques!) and some of Jeffrey Lloyd Dever’s techniques to make the beads (if you’ve done Jeffrey’s class you’ll know there’s a lot of spit involved!) I actually used Sculpey ultra-light as the core – so they’re not too heavy – but had a few challenges along the way. The grey to white bead with the white marks on it only got the marks when the bead cracked in a few places when it was baked! I added a few more cracks and filled them with white. These are my favorite colors, and I love wearing it.
