Karen Woods pushes gilds her inks on raw polymer on PolymerClayDaily

PCD will be on travel schedule this week since I’m catching up on the latest twists in polymer at the Virginia conference. I can’t sit still long enough to write so posts will appear from time to time.

Surface decoration is still all the rage and just when you thought you’d seen it all, Karen Woods demos some alcohol tricks (click at left) on unbaked clay or Anita Kennerly and Joey Barnes show off new pigment powders they found.

    Credit rightfully goes to Debbie Crothers from down under for her demo on blowing alcohol ink with a straw ! Love her experimentations!

      Thanks to Karen Woods for the shout out to Debbie Crothers. I just watched that tutorial and will try it on a bowl that needed “something”.
