i came across this tutorial: http://www.sculpey.com/project/premo-magnificent-mokume-gane-pendant/ a while ago and wanted to try it out. finally got round to it! though i turned them into brooches and made a template from thick card of a heart shape instead  (when cutting the shape out the blade rips up the cardboard edge so its okay for one or two uses but becomes pretty much unusable after that) i baked the heart shapes on a large ceramic round bauble to give them a bit of a curve. it took me a while to work out how curved i could make them while still being able to attach the brooch finding (i also filled in the back with a little scrap clay befor covering it with dark blue to make it a little flatter)



ive seen a lot of gorgeous pieces done with foil and inks so i wanted to have a go.i smoothed a sheet of gold foil over a sheet of black clay then ran it through the pasta machine to crack the foil a little then added acrylic inks (i used a turquoise, dark blue and purple). i covered it with a thin sheet of translucent clay to protect the inks and stop the foil from tarnishing. i should have used varnish because i can never get the translucent as clear as i would like some parts are cloudy and i over sanded at one point taking off the ink and foil Sad and had to patch it with a little guilders paste Embarrassed still love the colours, i might try covering it with a layer of liquid clay next time Undecided
