experimenting with food colouring and salt grains to achieve a subtle colour and a mottled reminiscent of stone.
approx 1 by 2 inches. i added a layer of liquid clay over the coloured area to add durability to the design.
using green food colouring.
i attempted the same technique with acrylic inks but the lower water quantity in the ink gave a poor result, though the colours themselves were far more vibrant.
i think the sudden explosion of valentines crafts has effected me
its all gone pink and girlie!
more faux knitted brooches.
i used glitter red for this unfortunately the glitter seems to make the clay more likely to crackle when extruded and looped in very thin strands.
im still pleased with this one though : )
not sure about the pink heart brooch...i think this effect works better on a larger surface area : /
red and white heart approx 2 by 3 inches.
pink heart approx 1 by 2 inches
finished cable heart brooch
