Medium thin sheets of translucent clay with silver and copper gold leaf on both sides. Copper and gold, mixed copper and gold for a total of 4 colors.
 
Stack your colors with translucent sheet between each color sheet.

Roll with roller, see the leaf cracking?

Cut this flattened piece in half and stack again.  Flatten some more with roller (both sides to keep even)

I used my wavy blade and a bead reamer for my weapons of mass destruction.  Tear this hunk up by stabbing and cutting.  Here is the secret...........Th row in some psycho screams for best effect.   Hey, it worked for me!!!!   I make sure and kill both sides!! mwahhhhhh ha ha ha!  Cheesy

I squish my murder back together, to rid any air made in the excitement of things..... Cheesy
Slicing is very important here, aim as thin as you can get and slice the top or bottom NOT THE SIDES.  There are many places to use mokume gane slices:

in progress...
 
Different colors with same technique.

This close up shows the depth very well.  I highly recomend the copper foil, how cool is that?  
 
Yay, another "how cool is that moment".......everyone, break out your class rings that are lucky enough to have their names in them.  Make a mold with small piece like so.....After baking, stamp away!!!!

Thanks for the mokume gane tutorial!  (and wow, I hadn't seen a stack that thick being cut for mg... were the distortions still evident by the time you got toward the middle of the stack when slicing, or did you do more distortions as you went??) 

And just how cool is that to have a metal casting of your name to work with!! Shocked Grin

I covered many things with that copper and gold one.  The first MG cane I made I did not "kill" the bottom side and found distortion was different towards that end.  I learned to not forget the bottom second attempt.  I slice and stab completely to bottom (why I say get into it and tear that slab up) and found no other distortions needed.
 
Not sure why I did not think of the class ring name thing before.  I have made jewelry "tags" for the works I cannot fit my name in.  My mother likes to take my polybeads and pendants to jewelry class, now they know who made them.
