Paper Clay Beads

Welcome to 365 days of Crafts.  We are pleased to be a part of the blog hop.  “Love Cast in Clay”

The piece I created was made with Amazing Mold Putty that I used to make molds of buttons.  I placed straight pins through the clay before curing.  I painted the clay and highlighted the texture with Lumiere paint.  Glass beads and Wire are from Cousin Corp.

She knew there was more out there than just her small town and set off after high school to explore the world. It was through these travels that she discovered her love of art and her desire to make the world a prettier place. It was not until she suffered a paralyzing illness that she realized she wanted to reconsider her corporate career as a Chief Paper Pusher, and her thoughts immediately turned to her first passion, art. In 2003 she began an odyssey that would take her from product design to publication and everywhere in between. She is known for her distinctive, high quality creations that feature a diverse mix of styles and highly creative approach to even the smallest detail. Niki is an Idea Architect, easily outlining every project from concept to completion.
