Polymer clay brocade

I have finally had a chance to play with this technique. It is originally from Donna Kato's book - The art of polymer clay - creative surface techniques which is a book I have and love looking at. Adrienne challenged us to try this technique and has an excellent step by step blog post about it.

I am not entirely convinced by my first try mainly because I did not get a deep enough impression with the stamp and so the pattern isn't very clear in places. I still cut out lots of pieces though and here they are once baked

I made some moulded pieces too using a mould brushed with mica powders. I also just stamped into the left over clay and brushed with mica powders.

It is difficult to see the individual pieces in this photo so here are some closer ones.

Gorgeous - and I am grinning because you've used the same stamp as me...

I like your colour scheme better than my blue/purple one.
