Relaxing end to busy week

So busy this week, meetings, site visits, trying to resolve difficult issues, wallpaper gone missing, chandelier chains to short, data box to plug in bespoke desk that cost a bomb and has all technical bells and whistles, its not there, first told its under the carpet and is to be revealed, then told forgotten, very irksome.  All in a days work I guess, just deal with each issue as it arises and stay calm………

So today after a bit of “tending to my veg plant pots” I came in and had a go at making my all time favourites, old antique Coral and Turquoise,  Polymer clay for both, coral mixed into a reddish orange colour then after forming into shape, baked, cooled and  polished with wet and dry.  Then coated with Cranberry and espresso alcohol inks, buffed with a dremel kindly loaned to me by Lesley and the a layer of RENAISANCE wax and buffed again.

Turquoise I mixed the blue, then chopped up in small pieces and mixed black acrylic ink and charcoal embossing powder, scrunched the pieces up together and formed shapes.  Baked and polished as above.  Strung on red leather !   Oh and bracelets, well that was a much longer procedure !
