What brand of clay did you use?


What colors did you use? If you mixed them yourself you can include a color recipe here if you like.

Orange and Pink alcohol ink with translucent Premo (I made my own)

Tell us how it went. Was it fun? Easy? Hard? Did you struggle with anything?

The technique itself is very easy. I loved how it turned out. I look forward to using it again.

Do you have any ideas for variations on this technique?

I need to work on a flat sheet for making a Celtic Shuttle. I'm also wanted drop type 'stones' for earrings and pendants. So much potential in this technique.

Anything else you would like to share with us?

I used the scraps to make a traditional style tatting shuttle, I added a bit of fushia for a natasha bead technique. I love how it turned out. It's hard to see, but there is good depth here with the translucent clay.

I love the shuttles

I am also a shuttle tatter, and love the idea of making shuttles with the polymer clay. I love the pink agate, it really turned out to be quite beautiful. Very nice. I hope you will share more shuttles.

I love them. I saw you put them on a few Facebook groups the other day and thought they looked beautiful.
