Weekend Catch Up with Polymer Clay

Well I have finally made a start on the painting, glossing to be precise and we've finally decided on the colours for the living rooms make over before Xmas, so now its full steam ahead.

Craft wise I ordered in some Glossy Accents to try out on some of my polymer clay pendants, I've never used this type of gloss before and apparently its great for all sorts of crafts such as rubber stamping, scrapbooking etc...

Initially I've tested it out on a couple of pendants as I wanted to be sure I liked the finished results.  Its a little difficult to see the difference in the photos but I am very impressed and will be using it in the future as its very easy to use and dries relatively quick.

On the polymer clay front I had hoped to start making some new pieces by now but I seem to have lost my go with everything else going on.  I attempted using up my Mokame Gane cane that I created recurrently in my post Mokame Gane with Polymer Clay, but it went horribly wrong and got scrapped.  I also had a dabble with a new skull roller I purchased recently at Old Spitalfields market, but despite my best efforts it just was'nt going the way I wanted.  I have however have plans for a future post with my new roller so keep a look out.

And lastly I'm pleased to say that today I finally received my T Shirt for the Nike Run to the Beat Half Marathon, my training of late has been quite intense and its left me a little exhausted and with a few twinges and aches in my left hip, I believe due to my over pronation when I run, so for the finally two weeks I plan to take it easier now until the race, a prefect excuse to play with more clay.
