52 Creations - Week 9 & 10

Well I am a little bit behind and ahead of myself this week....does that make sense? I am posting up some of my cabs from last week and advance posting my week 10 entries. Not sure if I will get anymore made before I drop them off to be annealed on Saturday so I thought I would post them all up together.


I am pretty impressed with the raku cab in the bottom picture. I had to re-fuse it which still left some marks on the cab anyway so it'll only be able to be used in beading or in a setting. But after the re-fuse it had actually activated the raku effect and I got this cool blue/green outline. LOVE IT!! Will def be trying this again now I know how to do it.

Also the cab in the bottom pic is my other one from the other week which I added some more frit to, looks much better me finks!

They all look great. I saw your gorgeous blue on on the forum - what are the circles that you used with that one?

Also love the raku one - don't you get great effects with the raku... did it have the blue tinge in it to start with or did this only appear when you re-fused it?

Thanks Mel!!

Karyn, the circles are some rod that Nat cut up for me. I also have a smaller little brown ones but I don't know what to use them on. They are pretty hard to use in designs because I dunno how they will turn out.

Also the raku only did that when I re-fused it. I am guessing that the extra heat must have caused the reaction.

Very cool - Nat gave me some discs too so maybe they are the same as what you have? Must give them a try.

L♥ving your cabs!
