Debbie Crothers "Faux Glass Bead Maker"
Debbie Crothers is a fabulous polymer clay artist with an Etsy website featuring some of her awesome faux glass beads and jewellery.
Debbie starts with a white baked bead and then coats with liquid clay, alcohol inks and coloured dye, in some of her faux glass designs. They look some much like glass that I was fooled. I didn't know that I wasn't looking at glass until I read the product descriptions on her etsy site. Debbie is so amazing!
