I find a lot of similarities working with fabric, dye and paint making quilts and creating with clay.
Of course the most obvious is probably color.
I LOVE color and both mediums fill my soul with the infinite variety of colors I can use.
Creating a variety of patterns in each medium is a challenging way to create pleasing creations.
This is a group of 20 unbaked amulets.
Making the canes, which is one of the beginning processes to make these, is like slicing and dicing fabrics.
When I bake these there is usually a slight change in the colors. I intend to keep these separate from the other ones I bake so I can show you the difference in a few days.
The milky white area on this amulet is actually transparent clay. It should become transparent and shiny when it is baked.
I hope you will stay tuned to follow this adventure in polymer clay!
