Using Up Scraps of Inked Polymer Clay
Following my recent post on Polymer Clay Swirl Beads in which I created a necklace using swirl lentil beads, I have been left with some left over scraps of inked clay.
Incase you have'nt seen my post, I created sheets of clay using metal leafing and alcohol inks which was used to create my beads for my necklace below.

As you can see the scraps of clay are in many shapes, the larger sheet I tore into strips also. I used the strip scraps to cover base beads totally and then rolled them out so they blended in.
This is pretty much the same as the watercolour torn paper effect used by Maggie Maggio.
Here's some more examples of what I made using my scraps ...

So why not have some fun with your scrap clay and see what you can make...
