Angling for effect

Bohmer on PCDaily

After months of complex zentangle on polymer projects, Margit Bohmer was looking for something simple to make with her rainbow palette. She shows us how holding your blade at a different angle can make a big difference.

She flattened the beads slightly after rolling. Cutting each bead at the same angle allows them to fit together in a snake-like formation.

Margit has been using chalks or pastels for coloring her polymer lately so I’m guessing that’s how she gave this polymer it’s color. If you look closely you’ll note an interesting bit of variegation in each bead.

      Great beads by Margit. They almost have a metallic sheen about them. Well done.
