Since my server was done for almost 24 hours and did not do felting, I decided to play with clay again. This time making clay round beads. I had to mix Polymer and Kato clay to get some of these beads so that I could have two colored in them. The yellow, blue and orange, I added acrylic paints to the Polymer clay to get those colors. I am going to make more but smaller round ones, square and odd shapes ones. I will also going to try and make some buttons.

Round Clay Beads and Buttons
I did these this evening. I love the buttons. The round beads are smaller than the ones below. These are made with Sculpey Clay. I prefer either Polymer or Sculpey Clay to work with. I found Kato to be a bit hard and also it crumbled so much. It was very hard to knead, especially the white and black. I just bought these about 2 months ago. I have made a total of 268 clay beads, round and shaped types. I still have to glazed them and also I want to go through the holes to make sure they are opened. I will use a tiny drill.
