im quite pleased with how well this turned out Grin
 i made the cane with a back ground of translucent clay but i discovered due to the large number of layers required to achieve the effect required that no matter how thinly i cut each cane slice areas of the design became obscured behind translucent clay. i then cut the slices thicker, cutting away the translucent background to create a 3 dimensional surface.

brooch with blue background

cane and cane slice.

simple brooch made from a single cane slice. i layered this over a sheet of blue clay to give a coloured background.

as always comments and advice are more then welcome Smiley

I wouldn't know how to give you advice, but I can offer compliments - that is fantastic! I've seen the penguin cane on here before, but I never realised it could be layered into 3D  Shocked

I was expecting something more like the last brooch (which is fantastic) that would be simple and just focus on the cane...but wow! I am blown away!

Wow... Speaking as someone who frequently screws up making clay 'worms'  Smiley I am sooo impressed. Beautiful canes. And the 3d pin is really... Wow.

Seeking scraps! I'm in need of a variety of white on white scraps. (2.5inch square minimum) for pixel quilts. Have any? Swap for? PM me! Smiley

This is fantastic - I love Penguins and I love how it has an abstract quality about it.

i would love LOVE all of these, penguins are one of my two favorite animals and they are one of my totem animals as well, i love how they aren't too "cute"

love to take part in personal swaps, I would love a poppet of my very own, or a doll like the ones made by Poppets & Lace

I can't give any advice other than keep making these! They are really impressive.

Wow. These are really impressive and quite elegant. Lovely work.
