This is my first go at trying to create a stone look that actually works. A couple of these were s'pose to look like stone, but ended up looking like old clay beads. I guess it works.

Oh, they look nice!  Did you use acrylic paint for your "antiquing"?



(btw, if you want to get more tips on making stone and gem stones of various types like jade/coral/amber/etc., you might want to check out these pages:

yeah, I did use acrylic paint to finish them. I like them, but I think I can do a better job at it, so I think I'll post what I come up with next. I love your polyclay site, it's very helpful. I've used it several times.  Smiley

There are some tips on "antiquing" dimensional clay surfaces on this page in particular, if you want to check it out:
http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/molds.htm
(... click on Antiquing, Highlighting, Staining ..with paints, inks, metallic powders/waxes, etc ....)
(There's more on the Stamping and Texturing pages too about antiquing, but this one's a kind of summary)

Oooo, it might also look cool for the ones you have with actual cells to "backfill" them with clay, thinned clay, or tinted liquid clay, instead of antiquing them. 
There's more info on those things on these pages if you're interested:
http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/LiquidSculpey.htm
(... click on Stained Glass and Cloisonne/Enameling...)
http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/carving.htm
(....click on Backfilling...)


HTH,
