been playing around with Donna Katos squiggle beads again
(tutorial here :http://polymerclaydaily.com/2005/09/23/kato-explanation/ )
i thought others may find it interesting to see how even just altering one variable can change the appearance of a cane.
in this variation both the skinner blend and the white were the same thickness. this gives the bead a more pastel appearance.
this is the same cane but the skinner blend was 3 times the thickness of the white. note how the colour appears stronger on these beads.
detail of one of the focal beads:
detail showing clasp:
same cane again (skinner blend 3x thickness of the white) instead of stacking the clay as shown here i alternated the ends to create a zipper cane (whats a zipper cane? try here: http://www.polymerclaycentral.com/zipper_cane.html
i used slices of the cane to cover an armature of scrap clay to create the bangle.
as always comments and advice are more than welcome
