Beading

Made some beads from Fimo polymer clay. Some translucent green ones of various shapes, with some "gold" leaf mixed in. The green is a mix of 1 part green, 2 parts orange, 4 parts yellow and 4 parts white, all translucent. I was perhaps hoping for a more subdued mustardy shade to go with the gold, but apparently that green pigment is quite strong. I sanded and polished them, and added varnish, which was a pain.


The pink in the stars is 2 parts "raspberry" and 1 part "lavender", I think it works quite well with the black.


Used the black stars for a bracelet, together with two sizes of black wooden beads.
