Traci- that's a beaut! (I liked the other one from last night also!)
Here's my contribution- I used white, ink blue, pale aqua and dark lavendar- etched 'em all except the four that are lightly pixie-dusted.

Well I used to join in on the night owl, but the holidays have set me back a little. Nothing to show tonight but I'll be back tomorrow, as I have some in the kiln now. I love the new tabby for tonight very neat colors and a beautiful effect you got. Don't feel like an oinker we love to see your work anytime of day and especially at night.

Susan, Beautiful beads, I really like that you ethced them.The purples and green match so well, really a nice set. Is anybody but me having a hard time finding etch-all. The craft stores here only have them in the cream. I have always used the liquid. Has anybody used the cream? Does it work the same way? Sorry I probably should have asked that in the lobby, when I saw yours it just reminded me.

Thanks for sharing,

I'll join in! This guy is a special order and I hope is what was described as an Avatar. "A yellow being of light sent to deliver a message." Hope he is what was ordered.........Moretti, translucent yellow.

Susan - very delicate coloring. They will be beautiful on whatever they finish. And I always like etched beads........remind of the hours I spent combing the beach for pieces of beach glass.

Trey - that is wonderful! So much dimension and depth (and great job capturing that in a photo, too.)

Holidays sure know how to cut into torch time, don't they?
Back To Beads,

Sheryll - nice color, looks like yellow jade!
Susan - gorgeous colors on that set!!!
Trey - how big is the tab? I love the patterning!

Here is a set that took me forever because the holidays suck up so much time!

I will always be a night owl - just can't get it together earlier!:D

Sheryll - the avatar is awesome looking... except... except... (ok, except I'm wired for no particular reason so apologies for anything that comes out of my keyboard...) with the nose? and the eyebrows? It kinds looks like a lobster attacking his face... *running for cover!*

Susan - Gorgeous delicate set... If I tried that? It would be a sheep. *sigh*

Trey - Sweet looking - looks like a pocket "numb your brain at a lousy meeting" bead.

Aimee - You snuck in on me do you're edited into here. :D Love the set, you have way more patience than I do!!

And.... Somehow every time I get to my torch, sheep are the only thing that work out. So... Why fight it?


Introductions in order:
Upper left is a repeat of another sheep, the flaming one with at least 4 colors in his wool. This will be the last one with these colors since this one ran me out of the cane I made. :D
Lower left is a translucent yellow with white - Daisy of course, and I did hate to cover up that luscious color.
Middle row is an "au natural" all-ivory sheep and another Leigh Vy the denim factory.
Lower right is another Roy, but this one IS a Roy G Biv since I made sure I would have room for the Indigo (Cobalt, anyway...)
And somewhere over the rainbow? With the blue and white gingham wool and the ruby slippers? Well, of course that would be Dorothy...
Thanks for sharing, everyone!!

Excuse me for being a thread hog, but I have only gotten 2 short rushed torch sessions in the past 2 weeks, and I was so happy with how these beads turned out, especially the first one. It was the first time I tried this rounded sort of bicone shape.
The first two were for bead pen gifts and the last one I gave to DH. I etched it after I took the picture and I think it looked even better. I love the look of etching a transparent with silver leaf underneath to bounce the light back up. It just glows!




Shawn I had some old Etch-all that was getting black & stinky, so I just got a new bottle of "Etch Bath" liquid at Michaels. Maybe you can check online if the store is sold out.


Oh gosh it took me so long everybody snuck in on me!
Sheryl, I love that face. It looks like it's made of amber. It looks like something excavated from archeological site.

Susan dreamy set!
Booger Sheryll awesome avatar!
Aimee marvelous florals!

Heehee, I PLANNED it that way! I wanted to suggest the juxtaposition of the natural world against man's inhumanity to crustaceans. Yep. (Did not, did too, did not, did too.......)

What a great and wonderful business card holder, Linnea.
Briatha - The Pinks! The Pinks! I love the swirly pink lentils!
Karen - that center bicone is GLORIOUS! What a beauty.....
PolychromeAimee - those are stunning flowers. And great color combinations, too!

Did I miss anyone??????? OH YEAH! Nickki! Ewe, neighbor lady, make some wickedly cute sheep. Like them rubino eyeballs. Fleece Navidad (credit to the master of visual bead puns, please take a bow Ms. Peters) and remember.........mutton's funny about puns.
