But how to get those colors? A few experiments later, I found if I mixed small portions of clay with translucent, I could achieve colors that were similar. There is still a long way to go, I am working on getting all the beads made.... but here is a peak at what I have been doing. Will post the finished piece when (if??) I finish. I esp love the deep sparkly look that is achieved when mixing a pearlized clay into translucent. Yum!
|I LOVE the look of these beads and plan to work more with|
Translucent clay when this project is finished.
As I result, I whipped up a month's worth of earings in one afternoon (sorry.... only one using polymer).

adorable kitty beads I picked up at
the NWBS show last weekend.

are my "Prelude to Winter" earrings.
