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.
White, black, and translucent.

What products did you use? e.g. Lisa Pavelka Crackle Texture Stamp, or Pearlex Antique Copper Mica Powder. (The more detail the better.)
Alcohol inks Sailboat Blue and Purple Twilight, plus various acrylic paints from leftover paint by numbers.

Any special tools that other polymer clayers may be interested in?
Not that I can think of.

Tell us how it went. Was it fun? Easy? Hard? Did you struggle with anything?
It was time consuming to make both components needed, but it WAS fun!

Do you have any tips for others trying this technique?
Use short brush strokes when painting.

Do you have any ideas for variations on this technique?
I've done a few color variations and they've all turned out great!

Anything else you would like to share with us?
Bake a portion of your watercolor part first. Some of my pink paint came out orange after baking.
