1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re: MMMMM Fried Marbles..... on: November 28, 2011 03:46:37 PM
I tried it before and it didn't work for me. Yours look great.

I tried a few times today and failed and finally found the magic temperature. Smiley

It's 500 degrees for 20 minutes  - I did them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and just slid them into an ice water bath right off the cookie sheet and it worked like a charm.

I tried 350, 375 and 400 with no luck. Trying to heat them multiple times just resulted in breaks. 500 did the trick!

Thanks for a beautiful idea!! I love these so much. I'll bake the rest of the two pound bag tomorrow - LOL!!

PS - mine are floral marbles from Hobby Lobby - the flat backed kind.

Here is my entry for this WONDERFUL CHALLENGE!!

Here's the link to the picture, and I included the song as well if you want to hear what you're seeing. It's "Somewhere only we know" by Keane.


I wanted to create the kind of lonely feeling of the song - the "empty land" and the "fallen tree" were my focus for that reason.

I brayered the sky with dark blue, which gives that kind of atmospheric look you see. I just used a soft rubber brayer and blue water based ink. I used a sponge and brown and light blue ink to create the rest of the scene. Then I stamped the branch image in black ink, and added highlights with a white gel pen and a shadow with a grey Copic marker.

I added some teeny stars in the sky with a white gel pen.

I hope you like it. I love this challenge. My Ipod overfloweth! Smiley
