For day two I wanted to use up some ultra light that I had sitting around, so I made a bunch of base beads. I also had some dark scrap left over so I ended up with a bowlful of base beads. I guess if I wanted to be lazy I could have stopped there but I decided cover some of the beads to use in a future project; not only am I easily distracted but I procrastinate - hence the "future projects" -it doesn't sound as bad as "I'll get around to it some day". So here is my TAD - a bowl of 'naked' beads and some that are 'dressed'. In the two bottom pictures I show some that I have covered with extruded strings. Actually the same ones I used for my chain yeserday. The top right picture is a bit of a cheat; I used the ultra light clay for the base bead but it is covered with tiny mosaic tiles. I don't really have an idea of what I am going to use the string beads for but the mosaic beads are going to something I already have in mind. It just might be another one of my TAD's.

What are ultra light beads?

Hi Jeanne! Ultra light is a clay product made by Sculpey. Even though polymer clay is fairly light itself, on large pieces it can get rather heavy. The ultralight is very lightweight and durable, it bakes well and is great for a base on larger projects. Here is a link to it: http://www.sculpey.com/products/clays/sculpey-ultralight
