I’m doing a demo for my guild Saturday on my foldover beads. It had been awhile since I made them so I dug out my clay gun, extruded some clay, and made a few for practice… Then I made a circular bead with the same idea, then I used some scrap skinner blend, textured it, used cutters to make a lacy pattern, and folded that over. Then I used some of the skinner blend and made a random bead.
In short, I had a good time starting with a simple technique and letting it just lead me. It’s been awhile since I clayed without any particular purpose in mind and it was alot of fun.
Unfortunately, it’s also time to clean the studio I only have a 4 inch space on my table clear right now – and that’s only because I used the shove method to clear it!
