Inchies, one-inch square polymer tiles, have become all the rage for swaps among artists.This set of fall leaves from Mama Tierra was part of the trading flurry at the EuroClay Carnival in Madrid. Repeat a technique 81 times and you’re bound to get good at it!

They look great in a grouping. Here are some more inchie pictures that caught my eye:

Maybe my muse wants me to start small this week.

    Amazing. Beautiful colors in the leaf tiles and I adore the skull inchies.

    I made a lot of these over the summer for my Christmas cards and business cards.

          All the inchies were just amazing. That group really showed their talent. The varying techniques – use of color – texture – and oh, the packaging – all were neatly packaged in colorful bags, boxes, with interesting handmade tags – it is a swap I will treasure forever!

                Ooooo…! Love those leaves, and the landscapes wowed me. They’re all amazing and fun to look at. A sort of mosaic effect. Cool!
