Hand painted Butterfly pendants

I have been playing around with butterfly pendant ideas since I started making polymer clay jewelry after years of making fun little animal figurines.  The lines are drawn in free hand.  Then I decide on the colours.  Each section is painted with PearlEx Powder then 5 layers of coloured Liquid Polymer Clay is added on top.

Now just curing, sanding and buffing.  Will post an complete picture once this is ready.  I am quite happy with how this had turned out.  Will work on another one that is a bit larger so I have a more room to try to add more colour.  I hope to get a few more made for both the website and the upcoming Christmas craft fairs in November in and around Cranbrook.

Playing with Clay and Ink

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

Thought I would take a break from Christmas ornaments and experiment with Pardo translucent clay, Pearl Ex Powders and Alcohol Inks today.  Very very happy with the results.  It’s always a guess what will happen before you figure out the ratio of ink to clay.  But I am very happy with these results.  I was going to leave them they way they are but think I will sand and buff them.  The lighter colour  ones look like beautiful moonstone.

Now thinking of other ways to use this great clay for other pendant designs.  Off to the sketchbook now to see what I can work out.
