Along with my new found passion for creating kaleidoscope cane, I have been getting into Mokume Gane. There are a few methods out there.
I have been experimenting with Tory Hugh's texture imprint version, and mixinng it up with the Hidden Magic versions, with some fun results
I made some texture sheets, by making patterns out of extruded snakes of polymer on a flat sheet. Then imprinted them onto my skinner blends of clay
Here is the first sheet, it reminds me of surf and sand
With the left over "scraps" I made these hearts, using caning techniques
Then I made swirly beads with the rest. This Mokume Gane sheet went a long way :)
Here are a couple of bookmarks I made in a different MG colour scheme
Fab vibrant colours aren't they? I must be reacting to the white snow surrounding me here LOL. We will be having a white christmas for sure this year :)
Happy Holidays!!! Hearts and Kisses :)

I didn't realise how long it's been since my last entry whoops!
I have been engrossed in learning how to make kaleidoscope canes in polymer clay and have found the process to be a little addictive, to say the least
With all the cane clutter building up in the studio, I tried out making pendants,wall hangings and pens out of patterned clay
Its has been fab fun...enjoy the pics :)
