Catch up Time!

Trying to catch up on my blogging.  I've got so much to starts...a few finishes...but, alas, no pictures.....yet.  Working on that.

But, without pictures, I can say that I tried working with resin.  I planned to make some components for jewelry.  Cabochons for earrings and pendants.  But I have to say...I really don't like working with resin.  It's sticky and takes at least three days to cure.  Unfortunately, it's rather humid here in Hawaii, so it often takes longer.  The one thing I do like resin for is to seal my paper clay components after I've painted them.  I think once my supply of resin is gone, I won't be making resin anything.  Resin jewelry stuff is just one thing that doesn't really appeal to me.

I've been making lots of paper  clay components.  They are so light weight and I can use my metal leaf pens on the components to make them look silver, gold or copper. I've made earrings and pendants that actually look like ceramic, but are so very light.  

Gotta get some pictures to post this week!
