It was a fabulous experience and I came home with my head bursting with ideas. I've been busy trying different techniques and seeing what worked and what didn't. I love the layering techniques that Laurie taught us. Then you add in a few "found objects" and the results just makes me happy!
Here is a picture of the box I made in the workshop. I didn't have a lot of blingy stuff with me so it's a bit on the bland side compared to some of the other boxes made by the other attendees. We had a great "show and tell" at the end of the workshop!
Another interesting discovery was that the clear acrylic pieces that I had purchased for a totally different purpose back around Christmas turned out to be the perfect addition to the top to the box. In addition to just being really cute, it works like a knob when taking the box top off. And, amazingly enough, it didn't melt while the clay was being cured. I did cure the first one separately just in case!!!
One thing that I've discovered about these little treasure boxes is that they are addictive! I am just having too much fun!!!
I'm in the process of adding these to my Etsy store but for a view of some of my designs, go to my Flickr photo site.
