Olga Sypkova from Kemerovo, Russia plays rough with her African Ethnic beads.
What starts out as cane slices simply applied to clay bases becomes much more interesting once she draws a few lines with circles, scrapes some lines and scratches the surface with sandpaper.
A coat of light acrylic paint accentuates the marks. The rough treatmentt gives an ordinary polymer bead a tribal look with a mysterious past. The beads must have been worn and treasured.
Olga offers you a step-by-step free tutorial. See more of her work on this Russian site (use your translator).
