After a very long time, I finally had some time for creativity! A couple of happy hours I spent playing like a kid with all was capturing my brain.
A lot of minutes passed with corn starch clay (I recently knew it's also called "cold porcelain").
Mum gave me a small ready block in april and it's still fresh and soft.
I coloured part of it in green, using a drop (of blue tempera color) and a drop of green.
Green is my favourite color, but I haven't explored it very much in my creative life, so I decided to work around this color as much as possible, this year.
I've recently developed a passion for mint green (this little bag has a big part in this for sure!) and I think I've obtained it with my mix:
With the help of the back of a paint brush I realized some tiny rings, very similar to some candies I used to eat when I was a child, inspired by this Portia's tutorial. I don't want to make a so complex thing, but I like the idea to have mint candies in my jewelry in some ways.
Then I experimented with my vintage buttons to impress flowers and abstract decorations into the clay.
I've also darkened a bit the clay, making its color more similar to emerald green, another tone of green I really like.
Now my works are drying:
I made 7 "candies", 1 rectangular pendant, 2 small pendants with a flower (for earrings?), 1 big pendant with a flower (for a necklace?) and 3 in darker green with circles and dots.
Mum would be proud of me! :)
Can't wait to cover them with the transparent varnish and then put them together in new one-of-a-kind jewels!
Another thing I want to do with the clay is making tiny baskets. I'm not sure about the color to use for them. Maybe royal blue?
