Making Polymer Stones and Sea Glass GIVEAWAY

Quite some time ago I purchased a class called
 Then somehow I forgot about it and never watched it (very strange I know) until last night!
 Can’t believe I forgot about it!! It’s a fun class and I can’t wait to try making Stones. I was however able to try my hand at the Sea Glass. I need to get a couple more supplies before I can have a go at creating Stones.
My first attempt at the Sea Glass got away from me,
Cynthia warns you during the class not to walk away from them. I didn’t actually walk away but I obviously wasn’t paying close enough attention because before I knew it this is what happened.
Yup, I burned them, smoke alarm going off and the whole nine yards.
I was trying to get them out of the oven but wasn’t prepared for having to do it so quickly.
OOPS!!
They also stuck to the paper which is a first for me, I guess it’s not a surprise though.
Kind of cool looking actually but not a good thing.
Won’t be doing that again I hope.

Better, only just slightly overcooked.

Almost there, the colors are a little bit to saturated but I didn’t burn them!!
I had fun playing with this new technique and I’m really excited to try making Stones.
Maybe my next post will be about just that!
I’ve made some little Ammonite beads in Polymer before so I thought they might be the perfect thing to start playing with this Sea Glass mixture using my own aestetic.
Faux Sea Glass Ammonite beads.
These set of beads is available on HERE on Etsy.

    Wow I didn't know you could make sea glass look alikes. My sister walks the beach and finds them, I honestly couldn't believe how much she finds, seeing as its Lake Erie. I'm going to have to tell her about this. Not quite as therapeutic as walking the beach though, which is why she does it lol.
