my friends christmas pressie Smiley


i cut the basic leaf shape from a yellow/orange skinner blend, then cut one side into strips. i arranged them on a pink sheet of clay leaving a gap between the pieces (where you want the veins to be) . when your happy with the arrangement, bake.
i then filled all gaps with a well conditioned, soft pink clay (you could add a bit of liquid clay to your chosen vein colour, this will make it easier to push into all the gaps) i then scrapped of the excess with a craft knife, baked again and sanded  Smiley

more 'Crushed' bangles






i dont usually bother to varnish my work as i love the satin look of sanded and buffed clay but it makes the brights look so juicy! Grin
as always advice and comments are more than welcome Smiley

I love the varnish on the "crushed" bangles.  It makes them look wet and fluid, kind of like they're undulating.
Beautiful work, as always.
I'd love to be your friend and receive a christmas leaf. Smiley

The leaf is fantastic! It's simple but still very interesting to look at. The colors are so vibrant and wonderful.

I always love your bangles!
