[Post Tutorial] Rocky Path Pendant

One of the things that I am grateful for in this era of hi-technology is the ability to research for different stuff without getting off my computer chair for a long time.  As artists, I bet you have experienced looking at a website that leads you to another and another and another.... then you realize that it's dinner time or worse, you hear the rooster crow (tik-ti-la-ok in the Filipino language).

I have purchased a couple of tutorials recently and one of them is the Rocky Path tutorial by Ms. Christi Uliczny.  It was first time to purchase a tutorial from ETSY and was very pleased with it.  The photos and instructions downloaded as soon as my payment was cleared.  They were very clear and descriptive, the photos very helpful as well.

This is the first piece that I made using a different texture plate and set of inks.  I used Premo clay and I love it!

The finished piece looks pretty and feels smooth in reality.  I didn't use any surface treatment or gloss - the high sheen was brought about by sanding through several grits of sandpaper and buffed to achieve the glossy, glass-like finish.  Gorgeous!

I will be making pendants and bead components using this technique.  
More updates on this soon.

Have a wonderful week!
See ya!
