They're here! They're here! "Entwined" texture stamp

I can't believe it, after so many weeks of waiting my texture stamps are finally here and available !!!

Dragon scales and vines? Oh my!

Fluid and organic, this stamp contains elements reminiscent of dragons and nature. The gentle embrace of the two different textures evokes a feeling of serenity. (I must have been slightly sleep deprived when I came up with this description!)


I made some jewelry samples a while back with "Entwined" and Even though i shouldn't have blogged about it before it was through the production process i did (i just couldn't help myself!)  That's when it got picked up on Polymer Clay Daily. It's such a compliment to be mentioned on Cynthia Tinapple's blog. It's epic actually! (now i'm starting to sound like my kids! yikes)
If you missed it here is the post.

Here is the jewelry I made with "Entwined"

Guilder's paste and alcohol inks were used for the jewelry to get that ancient, unearthed look.

The unique fan shaped leaf of the gingko tree remains a favourite of many. Could it be because of the way that the veins radiate out into the leaf blade? Maybe because the leaves are reminiscent of wings.
Either way, It’s a strong form with delicate lines. Lots of visual movement in this texture stamp!

I'm loving the Guilder's paste! I haven't been using it for very long but so far the results are amazing! This sample was made using black clay with Copper and Patina guilder's paste.added to the surface.

Feather Boa texture stamp

This is a quick pic that I created to show how great "Feather Boa" can look! Both examples started out with black clay that I used the Guilder's paste on. For the example on the left, I ran the black clay through the pasta machine with the texture stamp. Then, i just lightly rubbed a few different colours of the GP on the top surface,  For the second example on the right, i covered the clay with Germsn silver GP and let it dry for a bit before running it through the pasta machine with the texture. Then I added different colours of the GP to the surface.

Medallion video, That was easy!

What a difference a day makes! Last night I couldn't figure out how to embed this video.  It just shows what a difference a good night's sleep can do for you. (Even if the sleep wasn't nearly long enough!)
