I was looking through treasuries on Etsy the other day and came across one made up of purple and pale blue items. The color combo attached itself to my brain and I had to play. First of all I mixed the purple and the pale blue I wanted to use to make my canes. This is the beginning of the blend: (sorry about the picture...but I have a terrible time taking good pictures inside)
Once I got the blend completed I had a sheet of clay that went from deep purple on one side to pale blue on the other side. I cut it in two and made two separate canes....one with purple on the outside and the other with pale blue on the outside. You can see the different petal canes in this grouping of flowers.
I also used some scraps to make a Dahlia that is suppose to be graduated from lighter on the outside to dark in the center...but I need some work to get the look I want.
I made up a rose and three buds for this pendant.
And lastly....this adorable pod. I guess it is a pod. What do you think, should I start making these?
