MaryHardingJewelry Bead Blog: Ornament Blog Hop
Art Bead Scene is having its 6th Annual Ornament Blog Hop today. I have been wanting to make some Christmas Tree ornaments for several years now but just didn’t get to them. So this year I set aside some time. I decided to make them from porcelain clay and use some of my own texture stamps for decoration. I looked thru my stash of cookie cutters for a Christmas tree shape and found a small one as seen in the picture above and went to work. Since porcelain clay requires a slow drying time to prevent warping, I began work on these several weeks ago. I also wanted to make some bigger trees for ornaments and found a design I liked in a metal cutter and made the next set of Christmas trees seen below.
These were also an experiment in glazing and I love how the colors came out.
Next I wanted to do a set of photo transfers onto polymer clay. I chose some Victorial Floral images for these trees seen below.
These Victorian Floral image ornaments can be hand colored or left black and white. I like the quality of the black and white so I have not colored them.
All of these ornaments I made lend themselves to being hung on a tree or a wreath with a simple hook or ribbon.
I hope you will visit the other blogs in this hop.
Thanks so for stopping by.
