Fun with Clay!
|Donna Kato, Poly Clay Diva|
So I thought I would show some beads I made. I started with some black clay and a few canes I made.
Next I took the lump of black clay and rolled it into a log, and measured it with a special tool (so I can cut the log into equal parts).
Next I cut it into four parts.
Then rolled each part into a ball.
Next, I made a hole through each bead.
Now comes the fun part. I start adding slices of the colorful "canes".
They still look a little plain, so I added more embellishments.
Here are the finished beads.
These are still a little rough, but I think they turned out pretty good for my first clay play in years! After that success I made another piece - a heart pendant . . . .
and another "cane", that I think turned out pretty cool!
Looks like I'm hooked again!! Be looking for my new clay creations to show up in my Etsy Shop soon!
In the spirit of creative play, Cindy
