Firstly, apologies for the large gaps between posts – I do always intend to be a better blogger, but don’t always quite manage it.
This week I had my first foray into Fimo for almost a year. I made this focal bead:
I made a Skinner blend using a dark wine colour with a pale champagne colour. I then added some raised dots in the dark wine colour brushed with Perfect Pearls in Blue Patina and cut using a Makins tiny cutter.
I also made this pendant:
For this I made a dark blue and grey jelly roll cane, which I then made into a tile cane. I then made a grey strip using my Makins extruder and and decorated it using a Sculpey tool. I added some tiny blue dots to the grey circles and gave the grey clay a heavy dusting with Perfect Pearls in Perfect Pewter. I then dusted it lightly over the rest of the pendant.
I haven’t yet made these into something (to be honest they may never be made into anything, as I’m not 100% happy with the quality of them) but I had fun making them.
Thanks for looking.
