Beads, Crafts, Personal, Polymer Clay


beadz_babz_baked1I know I shoulda been busy with other things, but in my defence the dishes got washed, making a space to set up the little fan oven. And once you start these it’s hard to stop, bit like sweeties in many respects. Todays crop yielded black and red beads and the two wee hearts, a pair of earrings in fact. Flowers and dolly mixtures have been waiting for a few days. Think I’ll be making more of these now I have the temperature and timing  sorted.

New guyz on the (chopping) block

I had retreived my box of old salt dough creations of a high shelf and felt inspired! forgetting just how stiff my hands would be after 10 minutes of unaccustomed kneading.

First Six of the Baked BrigadeAfter getting to grips with the methods again after all these years,  I managed produced a whole boxful of new items, sore feet (from standing in the kitchen for 5 hours!) and a whole lotta painting to look forward to.
Some initial painting has begun, mainly to try out acrylic paint on the baked dough and to test colour mixes. It took a lot of trials to get a good ginger for these chapz. Still varnishing to look forward to.

Mostly this first baking will be just for testing but I think a few of them, not just gingerbread guyz,  might be good enough for putting in the wee shop.
