Birds and Bee Beads..
My friend alice is doing a ^5 firing today..
i got busy,created some sprig molds of this and that
then made about 70 or more beads for that kiln..i used B-mix ^5-6( hope it was that) had a lovely smooth creamy texture , also made beads from a chocolate bodied clay, the bag had been hanging around the studio for a long time.
Rummaged around in the cabinet and found some ^5-6 glazes..georgie's clay co. sculpture/texture glaze sample set..had to smash several up with the hammer and reconstitute..
no telling how these beads will turn out..
as long as there are no melt downs then all is well.
