Weird Inks and Cool Pendants



A few weeks ago all of us on Polymer Clay Central were messing about with Adirondack inks and heat guns. It seems that if you put Pitch Black on clay then heat gun it after spritzing with alcohol, the black separates into all these colors. The first try, you may remember, resulted in the evil puce. So, the other day I decided to try it again using Pitch Black instead of the wretched Eggplant. This is what I got. PINK! The pink didn't show up until I thought...well, this isn't very pretty unless you're Dracula. Howz about I sand it a bit? What did I get? Girly Dracula. Sigh............ One day when I'm really bored I might try this again.

Then, the ever popular Kathi (she's dragonsglass over there>>>>>) sent me some cool pendants in the Julie Picarillo style. So, I strung it after making some cool little discs. I learned how from sweetie Carolyn (also over there>>>>>>>). The necklace came out really cool, methinks. :D

What an awesome necklace. How did the whole process go? I had to go buy some inks because I lost mine in the "scary craft room" and found them once I got back home with the new ones. I have more than enough to make a couple of mistakes before I figure it out. LOL.
