'faux origami' pins
From I class I just took. Super easy technique using a skinner blend sheet which has been dusted with pearl-ex & over-stamped with Brilliance inks (dries on the raw clay), then cut into pieces and assembled on to a black base sheet. The base sheet is coated with some liquid sculpey to aid in the positioning of the pieces before baking. You can't see from the scan but there is interference gold pearl-ex all over the surface of both, which looks very cool in person.
So many possibilities for creating quilt-like patterns! This look reminds me of Gwen Gibson's silk-screened clay, only much easier! The little speckles on the fan-shaped pin look like inclusions added to the clay, but it is really just a speckle stamp! I will probably use the kimono as an element on a box instead of a pin.
