The Cool2Craft Creative Play theme for December is “Give Yourself a Gift.” You give to everyone else during the holidays and all year long. Time to give yourself a treat! Make something, go somewhere, do something that’s just for you and photograph it! Then share it with us – post it on the Cool2Craft Creative Play blog on the Hive. Anything goes! I’m going to run with this theme and craft every day in December. I’ll be posting tutorials and videos as well as making some kits available at the Marketplace. Join me on Cool2Craft for 31 days of blissful, healing, creative play and give yourself the gift of play, too! [Candace J.]
I call these beads peripheral because they are made from leftover clay that’s been treated in some way, so it can’t just be tossed in with the untreated clays. That’s not to say that it couldn’t be used with other clays, but if you need a specific color, you don’t want to reach for this thinking that it’s the color you’re looking for. These clay had crafting foils applied to their surfaces. So, I make little moons and stars with these bits!
I featured how to make these cool beads on Cool2Craft Live TV – - leftovers can be turned into gems! Here are some details:
