Mid-October I went to an art retreat in Tennessee with one of my favorite polymer artists, Christi Friesen. This was one of the pieces that I made.

This pieces is made with polymer clay, epoxy, 24k gold leaf, covered in various glass and metal objects including a beautiful piece of dichromatic glass made by Pat Pawlowicz.

We had a great time working with the 24k gold leaf. I’d tried sgraffito before with the gold foil, but it’s not the same. The artificial stuff just tears and drags. The real stuff is far superior and is a joy to work with. Now that I’ve tried it, I might spring for a package.

      LOL. An expensive wrack line. I’d like to go beach combing there!
