A study in form, color, and texture…

These petite polymer clay torpedo-shaped fobs were such fun to make!  I started by making core beads that look like tiny cigars.  After curing, these core beads serve as armatures to which I can apply thin layers of polymer clay in a painterly fashion.  Like a blank canvas, they allow me to play with color and various textures to create a variety of abstract designs.  I couldn’t resist topping each with a decorative finial and brushing on a light dusting of pearlescent powder.  These will be great pendants!
