Here is what I want to show you... how to use trim to create fun textures in clay. I have tons of trim, I made pillows in a former life....
Click on the photos for a closer look.
First I conditioned the clay and ran it through the pasta machine on #1 setting.
I placed a strip of trim on the clay and ran i through the pasta machine. at first I was spritzing the clay with water for a release but discovered it wasn't needed.
Gently pull the trim from the clay.
I highlighted the raised areas with PearlEx powder. .
The PearlEx gives it a nice shine ... no sanding needed.
Two samples from a narrow zigzag trim.
I used another woven trim for this one.
I used the pasta cutter that came with the pasta machine to trim the side, I like the sawtooth effect.
I fit the strips that I trimmed with the wavy blade together.... kinda interesting... I might make a pendant with theses... and it would give me something to blog about tomorrow.
All done..... thanks for stopping by.
