CHEATER!

I know! It seems like a bit of a cheat! I got an email requesting the diablo bead for a photo and I'll be darned, I couldn't find it! There aren't any made besides that one, which I can't find (I think I sent it out as a gift!?!?) and I can't justify running my giant kiln for one bead. So, I dug into my supplies and came out with some very dusty polymer clay. How different polymer is from porcelain! I'd forgotten! I pressed and molded and sculpted and pulled! I baked it in the oven and I'm rather liking how he turned out! I broke out the acrylic paints and here he is....



Not too bad! I was expecting worse! It's at least passable!

This is the original ceramic bead...



Little devil!
