Aaaahhhh Tuesday again…gosh I’ve needed Tuesday this week – it’s been busy.  I’ve had Christi’s Swellegant on my clay table for a while now and just needed a good block of time to play around with it more.  I planned on doing lots of experimenting today and that’s exactly what I did.  This product really is fantastic.

I played around a bit with a particular crackle I’ve come up with (I dare say someone has done this before me though) and am really enjoying all the possibilities.
I decided to stick to basic shapes that I knew so I didn’t have to spend too much time perfecting a particular shape etc.  My focus was purely on creating crackle veneers – oh what fun today.  
You’ll notice in the pics that I’ve placed some components together….this is how I see each particular finished piece working.  Hmm I wonder if these will ever get made up now!! 🙂
Let’s have a look at what I got up to today. 

Two different crackles – one with Swellegant, one without.

Deep crackle with chalks and Swellegant.  Not sure how this one will seal – it may become part of an art piece so I don’t have to worry about sealing it.

 

I love this combination.  The gentle arch, pebbles and tube bead – all my favourite components.

A close up of the tube bead.  Love the Swellegant on this one.

Hmmmm love the Swellegant on this one too…and a plain crackle added.  Again, gentle arch and pebbles finish it off beautifully I think.

Cracks are deliberate – wish there were more!!

Hmmm luscious crackle sticks.  This will become a necklace – oh and it will become mine!! hahaha

Swellegant crackle and plain crackle.

A variety of tubes created today with a variety of different crackles.
I sure hope you like these pieces, I had fun playing….and lots more to experiment with too.

Oh I wanna do a load of crackle sticks like those with the long chartreuse stick. Just love that selection, and that colour. Juicy!
