Inspiration Friday

A few weeks ago, I had got it into my head that making a faux geode in resin/silver/polyclay would be a fun experiment. I don’t think I’m quite there yet, as the glitter I used was a bit too fine (Martha Stewart brand). I did however just receive in the mail a few packets of vintage german glass glitter. The particles on the vintage stuff are much larger, and I think would work out better.

Obviously, I’ve kept my initial experiments to polymer clay. I’ll move on to silver when I think I’ve got it right.
 What I find also works best is to keep the surface of the glitter quite rough, and if you can manage hills and valleys – even better. 

The initial experiment is a bit on the rough side – but I really do think these have potential. I’ll keep playing 🙂

We would love to have you show off your stuff! Were you inspired this past week by anything? Send us pics of your creation to info@beadfx.com with the subject line “Inspiration Friday”
