powertex and stoneart

now that I have had some time playing with powertex I finally got a chance to
take it to the next level, adding stoneart
supplies used, styrofoam , cardboard, plaster head , powertex and stoneart

after adding a layer of powertex it's as simple as adding the stoneart
gently rubbing to create texture
after several layers i was happy with the results
to highlite the stoneart I used Bister (a water based patina)

I just love the texture it creates
to finish it off I added a little white to really make the texture "pop"

wire doodle necklaces

sometimes twisting wire is just like doodling
coming up with shapes just happen and no two look alike
adding beads just finishes them off
