Tuesday again and fun time in the studio – woohoo! I decided to play with Swellegant again today. I’ve been thinking of a few different veneer variations lately so of course had to give them a try and after a few failures, I managed to stumble across a technique that worked really well. I loved the outcome of these and when I turned them into beads I was really happy. Gosh it’s those little that get me excited!
Just a tip for those that use Swellegant and find their product a little on the gluggy side: I added some clean, cold water to the bottle (just a small amount) and shook vigorously and it seems to make a huge difference to the consistency of the product. It was smooth and creamy and easy to use.
I made a couple of huge “in your face” type pods featuring the Swellegant veneer and lace veneer – not sure what they’ll become. I also made a smaller pod with the dot veneer and really love this one actually. I think I have a plan for him. Here’s a few pics to show you.
