I was mixing scrap clay to make bead guts.... finally came up with a muddy brown and a muddy gray but before I got out my canes to make beads I wondered .... could I made something pretty from this ugly clay?.... lets give it a try. I layered the two muddy colors, made subtle strips added strips of red, played with it for awhile and came up with these. Not bad.

Close up of the first one.
I also embedded clock gears, a small star bead and a wire coil in clay to make Mokume Gane tools.
That's it... not to exciting... my stomach says "time to eat"
Bye kids.... see you tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by.
