Hello everyone, I hope you had a great Monday. This morning when the alarm went off, I made the executive decision to stay in bed and not wake the rest of the house. Have you ever had one of those ‘irresponsible parent’ moments, when you keep the kiddies home from school, just because?
I have always wanted to home school our kids and I have dreams of traveling the world with them, teaching our kids life lessons through experiencing the world and all its diversity….
In preparation for Valentine’s day, Isabella and I have started working on cute little gifts for her friends.
To make the beads, simply follow the instructions pictured above. Allow clay to air dry (approximately 24hrs) and pierce with a toothpick or thread with a needle.
note: this method of piercing after the clay is dry only works with this type of ‘puffy’ clay as it dries to resemble foam. If you are using a hard curing clay such as porcelain or polymer, pierce the holes prior to it drying.
I used a molding clay AMACO had graciously provided called Cloud Clay and I can honestly say it is probably the best ‘puffy’ clay I have ever used (I am not being compensated to write this, it’s just my honest opinion).
If you visit my FB page then you might have seen a little peek at what I have been working on. Do you prefer the sneak peeks or to be surprised? Either way, I hope to see you again very soon. Thank you so much for all you do for me…:)
