Thanks for the treasures!
Lastly, I made another treasury myself! Dark and magical corvids…
THANK YOU to everyone for the features!
As always, i really appreciate being included in treasuries! it always makes me feel like the stuff i make is being appreciated by someone, somewhere!
Words cannot describe how much I adore Meredith Dittmar‘s work.
One of her newer pieces
We saw her first at the gallery at Compound in downtown Portland. And I was blown away…
From that show
I’d been playing with polymer clay for years and was amazed at what she was doing with it! I wish my mind thought that way…

things i need to eventually get….
higher grit wet/dry sandpaper
larger or different buffing wheels for the fake-dremel
future floor polish
tiny drill bits for fake-dremel
now none of this will really show up much in the pictures, but i’ve been playing around with my wet/dry automotive sandpaper and my fake-dremel cuz…well, i never really had before. i can totally see the difference but it also shows what i crappy job i do at sanding, ha!
these are my blue spider web beads before:
and here they are after sanding with 4 progressively finer grits and a bit of buffing with the rotary tool:
i think i need to get higher grit sandpaper and lose my lowest grit or two, it seems like the 180 (which i got in a polymer clay tool set ffs!) and 200 are scratching the hell out of the beads making it impossible to get them completely smooth. or i’m just being lazy about it. ;-)
either way i’m pretty happy with the results, never seen my beads so shiny! and impurities add character and one of a kind-ness!
possibly might list some of these alone or as a bracelet on my newfangled etsy shop…
