So after I used my extruder to make the basic strips to apply on the outside I made small (4-5 mm) balls of clay and randomly applied them to the outside of the bracelet. Using the handle end of the tool I pushed in each ball so that it looked like a small, round bezel. Once the bracelet was baked and Gilders Paste applied it was time for color. I simply put a small dot of polish in each "bezel" using an extra bracelet blank to hold the bracelet upright while that section dried. It would be more efficient if you did several bracelets at a time as there is a waiting period; you want to let each layer of nail polish dry before you apply another. But since this was an experiment I only did one. I think it turned out interesting and would like to explore this further some day when I have more time.
.....................................Caution! If you are new to this, like I am!....................................... It has come to my attention that using nail polish on clay can have disastrous results! It can turn the clay all icky and we wouldn't want that. So far the little bit that I have put on hasn't harmed it but as a general rule it would be better to go with something else. Perhaps small colorful stones. That is what is good about this challenge. People giving feedback on each days project enables you to grow. And heaven knows I have a lot of that to do. I don't think art can exist in a vacuum it needs feedback and commentary.
