From One Little Piece of Coral
I first used it to create a mold. Something I do with almost every 3D trinket I own cause you never know what is going to make a really cool clay thing-a-ma-bober.
From that mold I created this simple but unique pendant;
But I also found that by just using the top section of the coral I could create this very interesting crackle effect in beads;
The sides of the coral added a nice texture to the edge of these clay discs;
I am thrilled to get so many uses out of one item! It has opened my eyes to looking at every little object with potential for so much more. A change of position and color of paint and I have a seemingly endless way to decorate polymer clay art beads!
Much Love & Respect,
