Number 26 + Number 100 equals...

1) I will start with the "number 100." This is amount of times I have probably watched a video from Cindy aka PolymerClayTutor. She is very helpful in the polymer clay world, and has even discovered a new way of making the ever so complex skinner blend! She calls this the "Teardrop Method." I have tried it out myself and it is very simple, and a lot less time consuming. As an added bonus no math is involved. ;)

Cindy is also kind enough to have her full video of this technique up for free for a limited time. Hurry up and watch it by clicking the link below, and have fun experimenting. :)

1) Video of Teardrop Method

Make sure you post a comment on Cindy's website. Click on the article 4 link to find the video.

Below is a picture of my skinner blend using this technique:

My skinner blend is purple, red, and orange. For some reason my camera turned purple into blue though. I probably could of done a few more rolls on this one to get it more blended as well. ;)

2) "Number 26" is how old I am today. I was born March 12th, weighing only five pounds and nine ounces. I am now one year older and past the half-to-thirty mark hehe.

Final Words:

I guess you could say I have a lot of time on my hands today because 26+100= 126, and that is a lot of time. :P
