Today I used ordinary things you find around the house to make textures in a couple cabochons. I rolled the clay into balls pressed them in the palm of my hands and then used the bottom of a diet coke can to make the round cabochon shapes. They haven't been cured yet. I intent to antique them once they are cured, sanded and buffed. I used Kato Pearl mixed with assorted colors of Premo and Kato. I use at least a touch of Kato Pearl in almost everything I make.
Last year when I had cataract surgery I had to put drops in my eyes 3 times a day. I saved the bottles because I like the designs on the lids... I used them along with small screw drivers to make the texture on the purple cab.
I used a tracing wheel and an the empty ink pen barrel to create the design on the pink cab.
The other end has a larger hexagon design which I used to make the larger circles on the cab. I just popped these in the oven. I will antique and sand them in the morning.
I also made a pod focal bead with a mirror image center and a mirror image pendant. I put these in the box of things that need to be sanded.
Done for today.
More texture tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by.
