First Ever ABS Challenge

I made a commitment to myself to enter challenges and swaps this year to keep myself motivated to create regularly. Well, I had decided to enter the January Art Bead Scene ( based on the painting "Brown River" by Wayne Thiebaud

I created a polymer clay cabochon with multiple textures to simulate the fields in the painting. Acrylic paints provided the patina and some fibers add a bit of interest.

The filigree flower also received a patina of gilders paste. Not one new purchased item is used in the piece, I went shopping in my own stash (another goal - use what I have).

I cut it close in uploading my pictures so I’m keeping my fingers crossed the photos made it on time.

  1. The piece you made is stunning! (I think I even gasped a little when I saw it :) ) I think you captured the essence of the painting brilliantly.
