Mokume Gane Heaven
These are the result of that fabulous day with the 'gurls' playing with the mokume gane technique. I also had some ready made pmc pieces I'd made for just this purpose...my aim being to have several pmc pieces pre-made for impromtu embedding into polymer. It worked!
Directly above is a button with a pmc sculpted fish embedded into it.
The middle one has a textured pmc layer between two layers of polymer clay mokume gane. I added a pmc starfish and some pc sand and a little gold snail shaped 'thingy' on the bail. Notice the hollow tube bails? These are the first I've made using polymer clay with those core adaptors in the Makins extruder...and I'm really happy with the effect.
The top is a pic of the whole bunch of mokume gane things. I'm playing around with different shapes...
I have one more piece to show you which is in the oven now...stay tuned...
