Hello deskers, I’m playing with clay today, buttons for Etsy and some large hearts. You are probably wondering what the pile of pasterboard is doing, basically it helps the ceramic pieces stay flat while they dry, and it also absorbs moisture.
I will be glazing the buttons but the hearts will be bisque. I’ve been experimenting with scenting the hearts with lavender and rose geranium oils but I’m having a problem getting the scent to stay more than a couple of days. I have tried glycerin as a carrier but that didn’t work so if you have any ideas I’d love to hear from you.
It’s been a busy week, I got my blanket finished , it’s huge and I love it, but my wrists need a rest. I’ve ordered a jacket pattern that has a yoke with one large button, I’d like to add one of my own buttons.
Here are the earrings that were waiting to be fired last week, I’ve made them into pairs with just a couple needing grinding and a few odd ones which will join the other dichro cabs that I have in my shop.
