Hello. I've been experimenting again with polymer clay. There are just so many options when working with this clay. Today I mixed my color. Pressed round balls of clay between two stamps, and then brushed on some acrylic paint. Then I flattened out the bead so they were smooth. I think they turned out pretty neat. Actually, they are baking in the craft oven now. Here is a picture I took before they were fired. I might do some sanding afterward to even out some of the paint strokes. They have that shabby chic look.
