Silastones


I just found the new way to do Mokume Gane without having to slide the thin layer out of the stack of clay sheets (not my favorite thing to do). It starts out as Christi Friesen's Mogume Gane, with a few twists, I came up with this cool results. These pendants got the looks of Mogume Gane and "Fordite" (see Polymerclaynotes.com) I also can make matching beads from the scrap. Sanding and buffing these pendants is quite fun and they look much better. I am going to call them "SILASTONES".
The tutorial for this is finished. You can view it at www.polymerclaybeads.blogspot.com. Please leave the comment, thank you.
P.S. I was inform that this technique was published and taught by Donna Kato. I'd neither seen it nor taken any class from her. But I 'd always been inspired by her talent and the willingness to share her knowledge.
