So I've been working on a special project recently that has left me with oodles of scrap clay and I've been trying out some techniques to upcycle the extra bits.
Here's my first attempt. I had some basic canes from a "how to" demonstration that I wasn't planning on using. So I upcycled them to make these funky vase beads.
Next I had a go with some mixed cane ends.
I was less pleased with the results on this one, so I varied my technique a little to create the next set of beads.
I'm much happier with these babies. It is almost a tie dye meets swirl effect.
I'll have another go at this one and post how my next beads turn out.
