I had been looking at a magazine ad for the Shapelets kits and had some clay out last night so I played around and tried making my own. I put them in my album if you want to see My "Shapelets" pins (Wish I hadn't scanned them so large, you can see every smudge and "dirty spot" in the clay! LOL!)
As you can tell, I didn't use a template; I just bent my tissue blade, so they're not perfect. So I have some questions for those of you who've tried the kits:
--Do the templates come in lots of different sizes?
--After baking, do you need to seal with anything to prevent the ink from smudging? (I just used pigment inks.)
--How thin do you roll the clay? It seemed to me these could get pretty thick with lots of layers...
--After cutting the shapes, how do you prevent stretching, i.e. if they're very thin...?
--The stamps in the kits... are they good, deeply etched stamps or does it matter? I was surprised what a good stamped image I got without really pressing!
I know I had at least one more question, but I can't think of it now. Please share, those of you who've used the kits or similar techniques!
