Playing with clay...

Pin It

Today I decided to spend some time playing with my Fimo. So I decided to do some mokume gane using pink, purple, white and silver. Mokume gane is a Japanese metalworking technique that resembles wood grain and is very easy to mimic in polymer clay.

You layer thin sheets of different coloured clays on top of each and then distort it by slicing through it. Then you cut very thin slices from it to reveal the pattern. Hard to describe but easy to do!!

The beads are made from the left over bits!!!
