Made some beads

Some time ago from polymer clay, but I just found the photos on my camera card.   I like the colour mix and the figure-bead, but the surface is not quite as good as I'd like (although I think the imperfection of the surface shows up more in the photos than on the object.)   Maybe they need to be sanded or varnished or... something.




It's rather tragic really that I can't stop making all this crap.  It isn't very good, but it's just good enough to be frustrating when I look at it afterwards.  Probably if I could just stick to one medium the results would be better.

I think they would bother me if I were wearing it, but I can't decide if they would still bother me if I hadn't made it!

I'm also voting for texture stays. Looks like wood grain. Makes them more interesting. At least texture isn't fingerprints (like what happens whenever I attempt modelling anything in fymo!)

I think the curved marks are a little too rough, and also there's a patch on the back that is too-too-smooth by comparison because it was sitting on the ceramic plate. But I do seem to have found the art of No Fingerprints!

Also, your icon! so disturbing :-D

Thank you!

I think maybe instead of doing a whole necklace of hexagons, I should have done one feature hex and more round beads. It's easier to make round beads look perfectly finished!

I like the hexagons myself! I don't notice the imperfections because I didn't make it. But that could be interesting too.
