You know what's not sexy? Feeling like the anthropomorphic embodiment of over-heated mucus.
Guess I tried to do too much on too little sleep. The takeaway is to never leave my house again.
While I done been sick, I've been playing with a shit ton of dried out poly Shipwreck sent me.
I meant to mix it with non-dried out clay, but I ran out.
And since I dont have the wherewithal to leave my house or even decide to be lazy and just order it all even thought there's a Michael's 3 blocks away, I've just been painstakingly mixing thin slices of the dried stuff with mineral oil to make it workable.
Resulting in 10x more work for me oh well.
So anyways, all the clay I got is crazy bright so I'm experimenting with the mix of neutral/grey with neon. The results are nothing like what I do in jewelry, I don't think.
But fuckit, I find it intriguing.
The colorway is very contemporary and the stratum thing is primordial. Yeah.
It's based on this tutorial, part of a little pack of tutes I got for the faux raku one:

So yeah wanna hear about my runny nose, headache and fever?
When you're sick you kinda feel high as well. And it's hard to see clearly so all these beads are sort of surprises that I have no control over.
What else? Some more meteorites.
That I made with rock salt.
Here's some early attempts at the extruded Jupiter beads that I didn't like so I turned them into faceted beads.
Which the extruder is this thing by the way:
I'm having trouble keeping myself from buying every polytute out there.
Even though I know most of the info is findable for free on youtube and stuff.
There is something about having it handed to you on a platter.
