I wanted to experiment creating decorative patterns by drilling holes in cured clay with a knife and hand drill then back filling with black clay, baking and sanding







im really pleased with how this came out though in order to achieve a relativly large area to show the design i feel the bangle isnt as elegant as some of my other designs. The bangles measures nearly an inch in width.

Flamingo cuff


decorative experiment with coloured pencils.
spraying with an artists fixative designed for charcoal or pastels allows the application of varnish without smearing the design
as always comments or advice are more thn welcome Smiley

The black and white one is so pretty!  It sounds like so much work, but I love the effect!!

From the thumbnail I thought the first one was covered in lace, I really like the effect! Smiley
