I’m trying to design a bead strand from which to hang my polymer clay butterfly. The scale is all wrong here. The beads are too fat! Back to the drawing (bead) board!
I think this 14k gold-plated chain and a jump ring might be all the butterfly needs. The bail is 18k.
Today’s experiment:Remember the black butterfly I cast in Sculpey Soufflé polymer back in January?
Its been baked, and today I painted it with Lumiere paints. I used a dry paint technique with angled bristle brushes. I used a liner on the body.
I had lots of paint leftover, so I brushed some gold on a red piece I had molded, cast, and baked.
The Lumiere paints have lots of shine, so I think I’ll finish these with a satin glaze.
