They are really well done! I like the color/texture!

Thankyou so much!

Lovely. Did you use a press?

Thankyou =) Hmmm, not even sure what a press would be  Undecided The technique I used I think would be called the sutton slice. I don't use a lot of stamps and this was my only time using that technique, but I think that's what it's called. This was a stamp I made from my own design BTW, not one you can buy.

These came out beautiful, what is the brand you used?

Thankyou =) I used paint from Weber, the tube says W Oil, if that helps. It was on clearance at Hobby Lobby =) So it may not even be available now. I think all the water mixable oils are fairly much the same though.

as far as water mixable oils on clay--what was it like working with those paints? if you've used acrylic on clay, would you say these oils are better/worse in any way?

The only acrylic I've used on clay has been for antiquing, so I can't really give a good comparison there. I will say these are heavily pigmented and do not wipe as clean as acrylic will, so expect more color to be left behind. This was the only project I've used the WMO on but I can see in the really tight corners, where there is more paint....it has a shine like it is wet, so you do need to really work at getting the 'extra' paint off if you want it to dry thoroughly. The good part about this is it's something you are not going to have to seal (and what could you seal it with anyways?), but if you plan to use other things on the clay as well, you're going to have to take that into consideration.

Very pretty and wonderful popping colors.
Have you considered putting in a hole or attaching something to the back to make them wearable (jewelry, buttons, etc)?
Love the celtic touch too!
