AM078 Med Conch Shell
AMKT7 X4Lge Floral Texture

Using a mix of gold, chocolate, and chocolate/gold Sculpey III, which I rolled, then folded, and rolled again until I got this texture. I put the last fat snake through the pasta machine.

I then cut a piece of the flat sheet of clay and pressed into it AMKT7 Floral Texture, I used a piece to cast the conch shell and back-filled it with scrap clay. The idea for this pendant was inspired by an article in a Designs Original booklet.

Nature's Necklace
using

I took care to sand the sides and back when the leaves were cured so they would be smoother.

AMKT13 X4Lge Heart Texture

Texture Paste (Jo Sonja) was spread onto the texture sheet, when it was dried it was adhered to the tin with strong glue (E6000). It was then painted with Jo Sonja Aqua acrylic paint, and then Rich Gold paint, which was rubbed off before it completely dried. The Pomone medallion was cast with a blend of Sculpey III Polymer Clay, which was rubbed with Sparkle Copper (Pearl Ex) prior to baking, to enhance the design.
Both the tin and Pomone were given a wash of Sparkle Copper mixed with Gum Arabic to add a bit of sparkle. German Scraps were adhered to the top and bottom of the tin to finish it off. The back and top of the lid had random applications of Texture Paste. You could also use a texture sheet and do as I've done for the front and sides.
