Yesterday I made a polymer clay switch plate for our bedroom. Gary liked it. Lanie liked it. I didn’t like it. It was too saturated for the pale colors of the bedroom. So that switch plate now resides in Lanie’s room. (Not that she’s noticed it yet. Ha!)
Today I was feeling a bit tired of this whole Create Every Day stuff and wanted to just take a day off and to watch movies or something. But I never got that far. And it’s all my friend Ron’s fault! He made a comment on my Facebook Page about how I needed to make something that “glows in the dark of winter”. Now that sounded like a wonderful idea! It was just a suggestion on his part, but still, it was the spark (glow?) that I needed to get busy.
I’ve had this Glow in the Dark Sculpey III around forever. I never have used it up because I don’t like the colors. You can always tell when something is glow in the dark because of the particular colors of the material. So I used a tiny bit of alcohol ink to color the cream and the blue glow in the dark clays. It does inhibit the glow, but they do still glow to an extent.
And there we go. A glow in the dark switch plate made from polymer clay. Day 12 of Art Every Day Month. 18 more to go.
