I was looking over some of the pieces I brought home from the PC cruise, wondering why I have not blogged about them before now. I got very lucky during the door prize drawings to win not one, but two, of Lisa Pavelka's demo pieces.
The first is a hollow bead she made as a demo of a foil and stamp technique. The picture does not do it justice. It is soooo Shiny
I thought I would try my hand at the Sutton Slice Technique and just used a bit of left over clay I had sitting around on the table. I wish I'd had more scrape, as I really like the look of these beads. Note the "bleeding" of the ecru into the purplish color on the second from the top bead. I LOVE that effect, have absolutely no idea why it happened and will probably never get it to happen again.
These beads were finished with wax rather than my usual Kato LC finish (unfortunately for me, I could smell the wax now that my cold is over)

This Friday I am going to visit my favorite show of the year - RAGS. I have found some of my favorite OOAK pieces there. Last year I meet another PC artist and had a great time talking polymer. I hope she is back this year. And RAGS supports a great cause ... the YWCA's shelter for abused women and their children.
