Art bead scene july challengeJuly Challenge and I was hoping that I could make something out of glass in my lampworking class for the challenge.
As you might had read in my last post, I struggled quite a lot with fire, literally burning a hole through my skirt ( and my skin in this process) and my thoughts being scattered all over the place as I was working on another project while planning a work-cation so I ended up without a mermaid inspired piece :(
While we were making the pieces, some of the participants came up with this idea of coloring our glass doodles with glass paints and alcohol inks. Our instructor asked us to try and I went one step further and used patina inks on glass.
The result is a oozy-doozy slighly opaque and textural to touch piece that looks like a fantasy piece which I thought resembled the polyps at the left bottom of this picture. So here it is my totally experimental handmade glass bead necklace. Lampworking veterans please excuse me as this is my first attempt as lampworking.
