Paper Clay Beads

I recently used Creative Paper Clay for the first time. I had been wanting to use paper clay for awhile, and with the right combination of events and occurrences, I found myself making some beads that were very satisfactory!

This bead is a flat tab shape, it was big enough that I had to let it dry overnight before putting the design on it. I used colored pencil, graphite pencil, gold leaf and carving. The paper surface carves beautifully and it also has enough tooth to take the colored pencil very well.

I like cave paintings and petroglyphs, this is an eternal circle of running cave bunnies!
