Lotus Root

Getting myself going this year has been a struggle for a number of reasons, I finally got in to the studio this past weekend and fired a load of copper including some of my favorite shapes

Lotus Root
I decided I also wanted to try to create these Lotus Root pieces in Polymer Clay. I made some new beads with Ammonite as well and this is what they look like right out of the oven.

I colored them with Alcohol Ink and did a final layer with Gilders Paste and then sealed them.
They are a little brighter than I expected not really happy with them,
 I think I'll sand them and play some more!

Here are the Ammonite beads, a 4 piece set in Tie Dye and a 4 piece set in Blue Green.

Here are the beads finished with a layer of Gilders Paste.
I really love these little beads!



  1. I love the lotus root design!!!!

  2. I adore the lotus root pieces I have from you. Glad to see you're continuing with them.

  3. Kristi what kind of sealer did you use?

    1. Hi Becky, this time I used Nikolas spray. I usually use LIquitex.

  4. I actually love those colors you did - they are so bright and festive! Those ammonite beads are fabulous!!!!
