Swellegant Experiments

What is swellegant?

These are cool collections of metal coatings, patinas and dye oxides developed by Ms. Christi Friesen. (For more information, visit http://store.cforiginals.net/swmecoco.html)

I waited two months for these and it's all worth it! Although me and these babies are in the "getting to know" stage in our relationship. Nevertheless, here are my initial experiments using the product:

BEFORE : I made this focal bead using white clay then bake

AFTER: I finished it with Brass Metal Coating and Rust Patina

BEFORE : Sculpted wings in silver clay and mica powder

AFTER: A coat of Copper with Carribean Blue dye oxide

Can't wait to try more of the combination possibilities between the metal coatings, patinas and dye oxides. I will be posting more soon! This is truly a swellegant product!
