The colour of the month challenge is jointly sponsored by Off Mandrel (thank you Sean and Gillian!) and Frit Happens!

I have joined the two months worth of challenges together as I have a feeling all of you will be far busier then me over the next 7 and a bit weeks and I know at the mo I'm manic!

Each month the lucky winner, chosen by a random number selector, will receive a 20 gift voucher to spend on-line with Off Mandrel. The draw will take place at the start of **January** Last entries before midnight of the last day of December so make sure you get your entries in to be in with a chance to win the goodies!

A reminder that the entries should be new work.

So, the colours for the month for November & December 2013 is Transparent Red (striker) (this will be Effetre 591076). Come on let's see your creations!

Good luck!

I made fish!  Smiley



The tails still need some work, but I'm improving.

(Two have the transparent red, the third one doesn't!)

I do wish my attempts to make something sculptural looked like the things they're meant to look, instead of just melting into a blob and falling apart afterwards.
Jane, not only do your fish look like fish, but the two red ones make me think of strawberries-and-cream flavoured sweets.

I decided to make myself an earring pair and ended up in my default setting of "slap some dark ivory and sparkle on it and swirl it about a bit, and you're done".
I'm pleased with what the ivory did (my first attempt at homemade shards, BTW), but the rest turned out to be more tricky than expected. In fact, I need to make another one to actually have a proper pair.
Clockwise from top right, in chronological order:
1. Didn't like the design enough, and anyway the red struck a little unevenly.
2. I do like this one, but this is the last thing I could make before the rod ran out.
3. ... and then the other rod I had turned out to be a slightly different colour. Still, there's enough of that left to repeat number 3.

Aha! Can see pics now! Love the cone shape and the swirls! The goldstone really sets off the red/cream combination - very nice.
