The "bin" is where I toss things I make that I don't really care for. Some things end up coming back out after I have looked at them a few times and thought more about them but most things never see the light of day again.
Lately I have been enamored with ceramic jewelry components and beads. I don't have a kiln or even the vaguest idea of how to make ceramic pieces. So faux will have to do for now. This is my first attempt at faux ceramic.
I am trying to figure out the best way to apply the inks. With the brush I get blobs of color and with the make up sponges I get a smoother application. The blobs are more interesting I think as they are more like watercolors and seem to take on a life of their own, as in this piece.
I really like these two colors together. The green is called Willow and the purple, Eggplant. Both colors are by Ranger Inks.
Right now I am on the heating pad as I appear to be having a bout with sciatica.If anyone has any suggestions as to what works for it I am all ears! I am hoping it will be gone by Saturday as we are leaving for our annual trek to the desert of Tucson. I love hiking and so I am hoping for a speedy recovery so I can hike in the desert!
