this was for an old friend who i recently got in contact with again. she wanted a 'night sky' bracelet i tried to keep the design simple to suit the bangle style bracelet she liked so much yet i wanted it to have depth. (as some may recall i was unsatisfied with the initial results but after tweeking the blend i got what i was after )
as usual the bangles were created from a covered scrap clay armature, sanded and buffed
i used a skinner blend of glitter white to metallic sapphire to black with added additional glitter for these. i limited the amount of black used in the blend so the glitter in the metallic clays was visibal around the entire bangle.
i also discovered because the glitter white contains transparent clay unless you want the pale whites and blues marred by grey flecks of the additional glitter beneath the surface of the clay...apply the glitter sparingly over the paler parts of the blend
the commission bangle and one of the experimental versions.
commissioned bangle and both experimental versions (you can see the difference between the first attempt (the one at the very back) and the two newer versions made with the tweaked blend)
i really enjoyed this and felt i learnt a lot
as always comments or advice are more than welcome
