G(l)aze


We had a little bit of soft yellowy Autumn light today, after a very wet, grey week.
I have been baking and varnishing the polymer clay anemones I made yesterday evening. I love the moment when the clay has cooled down and hardened. The moment when I can start applying a shiny layer of glaze.
One anemone of this batch I have already worked into a necklace, and made it a matching pair of earrings.
The other hours of the day I have been spending on taking a long bath, reading a paper about violence and war in the Neolithic, and researching traditional Dutch clothing and jewellery. I'm planning to do a little post about the jewellery tomorrow or later this week.
No I'm off to read another article on the Neolithic process...

Oh paper, I see everything your hands touch, will turn out great! They looks awesome and I like them a lot. Just now I will play a bit with polymer clay after quite a long pause, too :)

Beautiful pieces! Polymer clay is not for me - somehow I'm not able to keep it clean.
