One Crayon Color Challenge BlogHop

This is the first time I've attempted one of these blog hops.  I am probably doing it all wrong...but here goes.

I picked the color purple...it is my favorite if there is such a thing.  This is a lavender color purple on two different types of clay.  There is not much difference in the glaze, but it shows up a bit different on the white clay and the speckled clay.


I would love it if you would add me to your list of blogs!

Thanks for stopping by, take care!

  13. You make beautiful beads. How fun the creative process must be to work with the glaze and then fire...then you open the kiln to see what magic has been created
