A note on how to make a scrap clay piece go from ‘okay’ to awesome … drop in some dots and a dash of shiny!

Rita Dumais Sim took a simple scrap snake rolled into a bangle and using nothing more than impressed dots back filled with gold acrylic paints, adds a layer of complexity to what could have been a pretty basic piece.

It doesn’t always take much to add that extra “oomph” to a piece. Try simple texturing, a little extra color, an bit of accent before pushing for what could end up being overkill. Sometimes simple solutions are best.
