Since I started with polymer clay, I have never run slap out (a quaint Southernism), but I am slap out of clay at the moment, and won't be ordering any until after the first of the new year. I guess that means I am on vacation!
3/4" x 1/8" double-sided bird charms
Various bird beads, some double-sided, 1" to 2" tall
The last of the clay went for these bird beads, some of which are for a trade between me and my friend Laura Boner-Leidy, who has a shop at Etsy called LauraBeeStudios. Laura made me a gorgeous, mouth-wateringly delicious black and cream necklace to wear to a wedding next weekend, and I in turn made a bunch of bird beads for her. And what she didn't choose, I decided to doody up (another quaint Southernism, we're just slap full of them) a few with some Swarovski crystal and some Vintaj brass. I must say, I am very pleased with the doodied-up ones.
I purchased some Gilder's Paste from www.gilderspaste.com a few weeks ago, after seeing Cynthia's feature on it at PolymerClayDaily. I'm still on the learning curve with GP and polymer, but it looks fantastic on the Vintaj.
I purchased a bunch of the metallic paste colors and a few of the matte colors, and applied a mixture of bronze and silver and black to some Vintaj left and right fern fastenables that weren't the same color because they apparently didn't come from the same color batch. I made them one color, mother being the necessity of invention and all that. These swishy earrings are the result. LOVE them!
