That is: first the making and then the glazing, at least two layers of glaze and some I did different colors on. Not complaining, just explaining.
Here are a few of them...
I called these first one Moon Craters. I used my dogs hair brush to roll the bead over. It gives such a great texture. The color is a soft aqua.
This second batch wasn't actually glazed, I used two different clays and wedged them together just a bit and then rolled them out into beads. I love the way they look!
The color on this batch is my favorite on this speckled clay. It is called dark blue, but I think the clay changes the color of it a good bit. In the recesses you can see dark blue, but however it happens, I love the end result.
And so far, the best seller! These knuckle beads are the most time consuming. After rolling out a ball for the bead, I then manipulate the ball into this pinched shape. It takes about ten times around to get the right shape, but I really like them. And next to the green above, this is a terrific color on the speckled clay.
I loaded a few of them at my Etsy store at: etsy.com/store/MartiC51
More will go up later.
I hope you enjoyed reading about them.
Thanks for stopping by, take care!
