Lots of new beads listed.
I actually took all my regular faceted clay beads into deactivation mode for a while. They've been really good to me, but I need a break from them for a while.
You can't really 'draw' with it--you have to use a certain technique, but you can then manipulate the clay as usual and the ink morphs a bit and there is a whole world of potential effects I can't wait to discover. I stuck with some easy stuff in my first rounds with it. I like the way it just slightly bleeds sometimes, and almost gets a tie dye effect. I also like that the printing process leaves some texture. The pod shaped pair above, and all the sets below are all Sharpie on raw clay.
What else? I messed around a little with the "about" pages a bit for my shop. I'd like to show my work areas and crazy supply stashes but it's problematic because it's in the basement and there is not enough light to take non-flash photos. I took some of the "best" ones and just messed around with them in photoshop but they're not good enough to post. I'll see if my husband has a magical solution for dark basement photos, because I'm not using a flash.
The about page will have to remain on the backburner for a bit.
