Polymer Clay Techniques / A pretty little nonsense
« Last post by Beadbug on July 25, 2017, 11:05:53 PM »
This is one of those 'ooh I like that' accidents that happen from time to time and often lead down a whole new meandering path. I made a block of clay courtesy of Donna Kato, her sguiggly bead method. So I had this block and no idea what I was going to do with it, so I took one of my silicon molds, a bow, a slice of the softish clay and pressed it well into the mold. The bow came out fine but the best bit was the excess clay I sliced off, the way the blend and fine lines worked out would be hard to reproduce deliberately and some lovely beads ensued. Must try this with other molds to see what difference it makes.

Hope you're feeling better Carrie! It's usually the seafood! Thanks for that Claire, I have avoided the crimped edge, what I meant, but didn't explain properly, was that the printing dots we're too obvious and spoiling the transfer. I did think about using markers to boost the colour and hide the dots but the ones I have fade over time so they're no good- I'm back to hunting out decent napkins.

Love the bangle. My own attempts at transfer haven't been too bad but I want to get some nicer napkins as the ones I have produce spotty images. My neighbour fell over three months ago and shattered her upper arm. The operation was only supposed to take an hour but it took three, her x-Ray looks like a prop from the Six Million Dollar Man tv show. She was having trouble sleeping but eventually bought herself a full length pillow meaning she could lie over it or against it, she said it was a godsend. Might be worth a try?

That might be a good idea, I'm currently sort of rolling the duvet into a sausage, but that won't work if the weather gets a bit cooler.

You have to make sure you buy napkins that only have the spotty bits around the border, then use just the inner piece.  The spotty bits I think are where the different plys are crimped together.

Thankfully Mum has been fine. She's been to the specialist and her medication has been sorted. I had a suspicion that there was something not quite right, I mean, how can it be right that her **** included three different medications for blood pressure and three for blood thinning? It seems to me that more than one doctor was involved and added what they believed she needed without looking at what was already there. I think it's going to take some until they feel happy with life, this has terrified them both and I know it has taken its toll, but I remain hopeful they can bounce back.

Sorry to hear that Carrie.  Hope you feel better soon x

No, not strapped up.  But it's quite painful, particularly as I lie on my side a lot at night.

Waiting for a call in for a scan to find out what's what.

Ooh - I really like that, Claire! 
I've done several transfers successfully but neither of my two bangle attempts worked....obviously operator error  :o

I've been ill...had a really nasty bout of food poisoning (campylobacter) while we were away - can't pinpoint where from.  Going to take ages to get my strength back and I'm being plagued with migraines which seem to come on when I'm under the weather.  Are you strapped up?  Sounds nasty...poor you  >:(
