I got chills

After another small polymer hiatus, I have had a little time to work on these simple chili beads.

Not a great photo but I used my phone - enough said! I used a little glittery embossing powder on the beads so now I'm trying to work out a way to bake them without using baking powder, which sticks to the embossing powder. If I put them on a tile, that will leave shiny spots so I'm now thinking polyester fiberfill.

I used the rest of the clay to make a quick cabochon, but it looks quite dull so I'll see what i can do with some sanding. Lets see how the embossing powder reacts to sanding.
