What I've Been Up To

I finally finished my clay pendants that I shared the before pics here. They've been baked, painted, distressed, glued, and glazed. Not too shabby!

This one was two pieces that I glued together and added some gold highlights.

This is more of a small bowl or paperweight type creation.

Here's the texture on the underside:

I love these roses! I added a touch of gold paint to make the roses pop, I mean bloom.

This is a pendant that I picked up at Michaels and added a clay base and lots of texture.

This is a quote from The House of Night book series.

I love, love, love this little birdie. I decided not to distress/age this one.

This was the very first pendant that I made hence the misshapen square. LOL.

My flower fell apart when I took it off the cookie sheet and had to glue it back together. I'm not sure what I'll do with it yet.

This one has a well in it like the pink rose one but I filled this one with Dimensional Magic and a little glitter.

I'm off for the weekend camping with the Florida Trail. Have a wonderful weekend!

Fun stuff ! Love the heart that shines though each piece. Funny, but I think I like the misshapen one very much ! ;-)
Hope camping was a thrill!

These are great! What kind of glaze did you use? Or did you use a paint after firing? I love the look.

Hi Stacey! I painted them with acrylic paint after they baked and then added a coat of mod podge to protect them. Thanks for stopping by!
