Well no paper or fabric involved in this week’s project. Time to get out of my comfort zone and try something different: clay. My friend Lisa sent me a bag of porcelain clay – my challenge, if I chose to accept it, was to make beads.
I gathered some tools – I decided I needed things that would produce nice textures…
And then I got stuck into making a mess with clay. It’s very therapeutic – and if you mess up you can just start again.
I ended up with an array of beads and buttons (click on the photo to view on flickr and see the notes explaining how I made each one).
Next step is to let them dry and then very very very carefully wrap them up for their journey to Lisa to be fired. I’ll update later with the results.
Speaking of Lisa, check out her beautiful work…
Hope you enjoyed this week’s craft – it was a bit of a different one for me but definitely enjoyable. Have you ever dabbled in clay?
