Texture in shapes

Whilst making up some pendants I thought I would be clever and try and do 2 jobs at once. Well it didn't work out how I thought but I quite like what happened.

I wanted to make a circular pendant with a textured back, I decided to cut out the circle whilst the clay sheet was over some rough sandpaper thinking it would get textured as I cut. As usual once I saw what happened it was obvious that's what would happen but you don't always think about these things late at night.

I picked up the sheet and discovered that of course it didn't texture the whole back as pressure was only applied to the area that the cutter was pressing on. But I think this could be quite a neat thing to do - texture in shapes. I'll play around with it.

PS I am going to have a giveaway when I get to 100 followers - only 7 more to go

  3. 100th Follower! I'm enjoying reading some of your back posts. New to polymer clay, but I love silver metal clay and will try to incorporate both into some new designs. Never made a cane, just started one tonight, excited and nervous.

  4. Thanks for being the 100th follower. I hope your cane works out well. I am sure you will love the polymer clay.
