Sutton Slice Pendant
by Jen from Roasted Ink
What brand of clay did you use?
I used Premo clay.
What colors did you use? If you mixed them yourself you can include a color recipe here if you like.
For the clay, I used White in the stamp itself, and Cranberry as a background. Couldn't resist the urge to play with alcohol inks after so that's where the firey colors come from.
What products did you use? e.g. Lisa Pavelka Crackle Texture Stamp, or Pearlex Antique Copper Mica Powder. (The more detail the better.)
Pinata alcohol inks, and a texture sheet from a Sculpey multi pack.
Tell us how it went. Was it fun? Easy? Hard? Did you struggle with anything?
I had tried this technique before and did not yield great results. It went much better this time around.
Do you have any tips for others trying this technique?
I did not spray the stamp, as instructed not to in the video, but did spray water on my fingertips while pushing the clay into the stamp. Another tried and true trick from Jessama Tutorials :)
Do you have any ideas for variations on this technique?
It may be fun to work with translucent as a background. I have these little snowflake buttons that are super detailed. Would be fun to make them into a stamp and Sutton Slice them onto an "icy" background.
Anything else you would like to share with us?
Just like in the video, I made one piece with two colors, but also made earrings using a Skinner Blend. Will include a picture of those as well. They were made using Premo also, no alcohol ink on those though. They were more difficult because of the dots. They didn't want to seem to stick.
