Virginia dentist, Page McNall rolled out a sheet of ecru polymer and added a few scrap clay pieces made using Maggie Maggio’s watercolor technique.

Then she colored the flat surface with alcohol inks and liquid chalks, textured it and embedded Mykonos ceramic beads for accent. She calls the resulting polymer assemblage Currents.

From this flat sheet, Page cut out pleasing shapes that became brooches and pendants. These two she calls Faux Stone Dentates (tooth-like, of course).

Her soft painterly chalks and inks are deftly applied. Page’s beautiful results may have you heading back to your inks to try again.

        Wow! I’m thinkin’ Page should forget about her day job and dive into her polymer work. Her Flickr collection demonstrates a strong voice very much her own.. Beautiful work, Page!

                I just did some ATC’s with the inks. It is such fun to play with them and I love Patti Kimle’s tip on mixing opaque clay with pearl clay to give your palette some “tooth”.
