I finished some new enamels! Yay!
I finished my sea critter earrings today! They turned out prety schwank, IMHO. I'm having a helluva time photographing the glass though... Guess I'd better see if I can sweet talk someone into borrowing their cloud dome.
Initially, the shark was my least favourite, but after many layers I feel the simple colors really pop and he's just, well, neat! The other two darkened quite a bit in the orangey tones due to the many more times they went into the kiln. (I should have known better, as oranges and reds never hold up, but I thought this color was yellow enough to withstand the heat) The starfish got so dark that I had to add yellow and orange mica powder to brighten them up! oy! I think it saved them though. Here's a fes pics with less reflection.
The backs have small pierced out images of a shark fin in waves, starfish, and bubbles respectively.
It's been a while since I've had time to make new pieces. To see some older stuff check out this previous post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=214193.msg2303046#msg2303046
Thanks for looking! Have a grand day and watch out for sharks!
