Polydays 2012 – can we do it all again?

Wow what a weekend! I had the best time! I learnt some new skills, I bought some new tools, I met some new friends,I had a great time with some of my favourite polymer people. I really didn’t want to come home! I was a bit worried before I went as I have been having pain in my arm and wrist. Amazingly it got better whilst I was away so I need to do more clay at home too!

Experimental Eggs

Pin It¬† I’m thinking Easter. I’m thinking I don’t want to have to¬† blow hundreds of eggs – it’s hard work! So I bought some children’s plastic eggs, the cheap kind that are meant for hiding sweets in so they are hinged, and oven tested them. Survived a baking so time to test covering them. Covered with a layer of scrap clay just to be sure, all seemed well. I made a quick mokume gane sheet rather than...

Mokume gane – again….

Bracelet 672Originally uploaded by Angela.B For a long time I have been admiring other peoples mokume gane but never quite managed to get results I was equally stunned with myself. Here’s one of the pieces I love by Angela. I was determined that I too was going to master this technique.
