These are some polymer masters for a friend of ours, she calls them 'waterstones' and will have them cast in pewter. Both sides are carved, one with a word and the other with an asian character. I used the new sculpey 'studio' clay for these and I really like the texture. I wonder if they make it in translucent.
After I finished the masters we watched Beowulf (courtesy of the Red Box-totally love it) and I liked it quite a bit. I heard less than stellar reviews, but thought if Neil Gaiman wrote half of it...can't be all bad. And it wasn't, I found it very exciting and visually remarkable.
I've had an amazingly productive couple of days, I finished the pebbles, worked on my book and started on a pmc bezel. I have big plans to organize all the beads I got in Tucson, which have been languishing on my beading table untouched since I placed them there when I got home. Its a hard job, organizing, but its fun to look at beads. My horde is getting out of control, of course the best designs can emerge from chaos (I think).
