I spent most of my time in the studio, today, trying out more ideas with the slump beads, working in a little larger size.
I wanted to do what I was able to do with the smaller slump beads. That is, to get the heat of the cup warmer to expand the second half of the bead as it dried. I tried it with three of the larger size beads, but it didn’t work. I still think the beads will look great, but I was going for a puffy little tummy like on the smaller bead below.
Meanwhile, the bead levitation experiment totally worked!
