It has been quite sometime since I have done anything with polymer clay. Yesterday I started and today I finished four new magnets. On one I used ground up chalk as the last layer of color, and then remembered how it basically disappears once the clear glaze is applied. I wonder how I could prevent that. These pieces were made using Ecru colored clay and after baked, they were colored with alcohol inks and acrylic paints. Some have pearl x on them, I love that stuff. I only have the gold and silver, but definitely would like other colors. I used leaves from my rose bush and a fern plant too. In the top left picture for the round designs I used the end of a large feather (sea gull?) that I had found at the beach. It made the cutest little circles, then with my ball stylus tool I made an indentation in the middle of each circle. I was going for the cracked, worn, weathered look. So that is intentional. I looks pretty cool I think on the one that says Grace, however the cracks are mostly on the sides and I didn't capture that in the photo here. I also cut up tiny pieces of a rose petal and added that to the clay for the 'Love' magnet. For the one that says 'Grow' I added tiny cut up pieces of the fern leaves.
Have a blessed day!
