I like to use this on the outside of my pendants and other stuff. It looks great!

Roll black clay into a snake.


Roll through the pasta machine.


Texture.


I use pearlex powders. I love the copper best.


Use your finger for best results.


Rub the clay lightly back and forth, adding powder as needed.


For a more antiqued look, use less powder.


Have fun!

That looks really cool! does it stay on good with just baking it or do you have to glaze it after?

Thanks Smiley

Yeah, it pretty much stays on. A little spray varnish to keep it from rubbing off wouldn't hurt though. Glaze might be a little too thick.

Can't wait to see it!
I've just started recently in clay and I love it!

I'm really glad they got the clay board Smiley

LOLOL... I didn't see the little word above the "roller" photo where you said you'd textured the rope!  I thought you'd performed a MIRACLE  Grin 
What did you texture the clay with?  And I'm assuming it was right after you rolled it with your acrylic rod?

I just love the looks that can be gotten for faux metals.  Different ways and materials and colors even, but ALL of 'em look great (and convincing).

For those who remember the gold and black (stamped-then-gold-Pearl Ex-ed) clay pieces in my Molds thread (and also the pinebranch thingie), those were done pretty much the same way (but a little less of the background color is showing through)... or here's a link:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=16741277.0


There are more examples and lessons for faux gold, silver, pewter, copper and even things like verdigris-ed copper on this page, for anyone interested:

Oh, dumb me  Embarrassed ... I thought the blue rectangle was just something you put the items on so they would show up well (and none of my texture sheets are that color --clear plastic or orangey rubber).  So is yours rubber or silicone or what?  And what kind of place did you buy it?
