thank you Smiley

Wonderful first projects! Many glass places are happy to rent kiln space, so do not let the lack of a kiln stop your creativity.
i will bear it in mind though there arnt to many studios (glass or otherwise) in my area Sad. the two closest closed (one did stained glass the other lampwork beads, was gutted about that because i only discovered it closed when i went to book a day class Sad ) but i will have a look online and see if i can find somewhere

perhaps that should be a new kind of swap...guess which craft supply caused my serious injury and i will craft you a prize with my remaining uninjured limbs.

or...'celebrate my serious injury' swap.
my swap bits are going well Smiley i think one of thems a winner...at least several family members requested one of their very own so i think as a crowd pleasing winner Undecided so fingers crossed my partner likes it too Smiley
4  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / mokume gane broochs and foil experiment on: July 26, 2014 12:00:19 AM
i came across this tutorial: http://www.sculpey.com/project/premo-magnificent-mokume-gane-pendant/ a while ago and wanted to try it out. finally got round to it! though i turned them into brooches and made a template from thick card of a heart shape instead  (when cutting the shape out the blade rips up the cardboard edge so its okay for one or two uses but becomes pretty much unusable after that) i baked the heart shapes on a large ceramic round bauble to give them a bit of a curve. it took me a while to work out how curved i could make them while still being able to attach the brooch finding (i also filled in the back with a little scrap clay befor covering it with dark blue to make it a little flatter)

ive seen a lot of gorgeous pieces done with foil and inks so i wanted to have a go.i smoothed a sheet of gold foil over a sheet of black clay then ran it through the pasta machine to crack the foil a little then added acrylic inks (i used a turquoise, dark blue and purple). i covered it with a thin sheet of translucent clay to protect the inks and stop the foil from tarnishing. i should have used varnish because i can never get the translucent as clear as i would like some parts are cloudy and i over sanded at one point taking off the ink and foil Sad and had to patch it with a little guilders paste Embarrassed still love the colours, i might try covering it with a layer of liquid clay next time Undecided

 Shocked wow. i just dont have the patience or fingers small enough for things like this so i admire anyone who can pull off tiny and realistic. love the pain au chocolate and the brownies but i think the doughnuts (its the tiny balls ) are my favourites Smiley

8  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / first fused coasters on: July 25, 2014 08:57:57 AM
was treated to a fused glass workshop for my birthday this year. i wanted to make a set of coasters to match those i was lucky enough to recieve in a swap last year but the studio didnt have the same glass so i had to improvise. i had great fun melting the strings of glass in the candle flame

i also had a go with the paper technique. he was ment to be a penguin, his feet are too small but i think hes probably my favourite despite the fact there is more than a hint of 'friendly ghost' about him  Cheesy

 if only i had the space for a kiln of my own Sad
