Faux Porcelain beads and A Sneak Peek

Art Bead Scene is hosting an ornament blog hop and I am late posting a sneak peek of my ornament. The actual bead was done a week ago! I guess too many things going on lately. For the past few weeks I have been playing around with polymer clay and creating faux porcelain beads. Some years ago, I took a class with the wonderful Deborah Anderson and learned how to make Faux porcelain beads out of polymer clay. I'd probably consider it one of my favorite techniques to play around with. Here are a few examples of some beads that I made in the last week or so.

They take some time to make, since both sides of the beads have images with a thin layer of translucent clay. I was getting to the very last of my clay I'm thinking that is why the colors are a little softer rather than clearer which is what should really happen, but I like them anyway.

Well, here is a sneak peek of my ornament and components. 

I will show you the other side of the bead on Dec. 7th, the big reveal and the blog hop. So, please come back on Dec. 7th! In the meantime, thanks for stopping by and have an awesome day!
