This week I have been working on hearts, this is the pendant I submitted for Week 4 of the
2015 Polymer Clay Challenge.
I made beads using the scrap ends of several Skinner blend canes, wrapped them in wire and added a open heart around the top bead. I am pleased with the way the pendant turned out.
Here is the back side, gives you an idea of how I secured the open heart in place. I "painted" the open heart with Decorating Chalks. First time I've used chalk on polymer clay, I like the vibrant colors and the ability for shading.
I made this hollow heart from scraps I was conditioning for bead guts. I liked the colors and surface texture so I cut a heart before I conditioned it to a blob of dull gray.
Heart beads made from Pardo Translucent Art Clay tinted with alcohol ink.
I used a blob of the gray scrap clay to fashion this heart. I wanted to see how the chalk would work on dark clay. I used red clay on one side shaded with blue....
And blue on the other side shaded with red. Worked pretty well.
Okay, that's it for today. I still have to add a photo to the Facebook page and the Pinterest page for week 4 2015 PC Challenge... and then I'm going to bed.
Tomorrow starts the "Thing A Day" challenge on Polymer Clay Central ..... So far I'm the only participant, yip, I'm a lonely little petunia but thats okay I'll just do it all by myself .... sob ( that suppose to make you feel guilty, did it work?) Let me tell ya it's a heck of a lot easier than the 2015 Polymer Clay Challenge, all you have to do is take a photo and post it on the daily thread.
Thanks for stopping by.
