Anyway, I finally had a quiet day at the Gallery of Ocean Shores where I was able to spend time playing with polymer clay and Swellegant. Debbie Crothers has written wonderful tutorials using Swellegant to create interesting veneers and beads. I just had to try it!
First step: create the veneer. So much fun.
Another veneer I overheated while attempting to crackle. I just kept pushing it into the clay core hoping that it would not crumble in my hands. Miracle! It held together.
Got into creating Dagger pendants with the next several veneers. I am getting the hang of crackling.
