Recent texture sheet experiments

Handmade heart using original texture sheet I created
Recently I tried out some Sculpey Bake and Bend clay, on the suggestion from my clay friend, Tejae.  I've previously made texture sheets with regular 'ole polymer clay, and also the Super Elasticlay (which I'm not even sure is still available).  I must say, it really does bend quite well! And you can run it through the pasta machine with a sheet of clay if you make the texture sheet thin enough.

You do have to watch that you're not "warming away" the texture while forming your piece.  I'll probably have to learn to let the clay "sit" for awhile to firm up / cool down, but I'm really not good at doing that! 

 
I'm going to be making more texture sheets, so make sure to stop by and see what I'm doing. :)

I've been meaning to make some texture sheets for ages, have some bake and bend sat here ready and everything. Seeing your lovely hearts, and brilliant texture sheet means it will move up that 'want to try' list!

Thank you, Laurel! :)

Found my way here from The Polymer Arts Blog. Love your textures... and adore what you've produced from them. So rich and tactile!
