Purposely use the black clay so that I can dry brush whatever color over it.
I can't wait to use these in a piece.

Show off! You are welcome to send those up here. LOL I have enuf on my plate with regular clay. No more new stuff to throw money at. I started that pc a few years ago and have a pasta roller and oven and a few tools, but no clay. You guys are making canes I think. I do not have the patience for that. I did get a bunch of end cuts from a gal on ebay that I cut and baked and used in my kitchen backsplash. You did a good job on these. I am drooling.

Oh, here they are. You have NO IDEA how I want to try this. I LOVE the double one w/red. What are they, and what are the top right green gems? Did you just lay the gems flat and wind around them, or did you put them on a flat piece of clay first, and then wind? NT's designs and these are making me want to go buy more clay. Thought I'd left it for good, but ......................

Thanks guys. I realize it is rather basic stuff, but I like the look.
Flag, I don't have the patience for canes either, altho they are beautiful and I too have a pasta thingy, but I don't use it either.
Slow, I just wind the clay around them. The green are some beads I got somewhere, Lord only knows. The red are some crystals that also I aquired somewhere along the way.
The good thing about having everything stached in the garage, is when I get started looking, I find all kinds of things I forgot I have!
The downside is that darn raccoon that has taken up residence!
If you are looking to buy clay, try this online store.
I got several lbs at a great price.
