James real textures

Victoria James‘ texture sheets are a favorite of mine because most of them replicate stone, wood, plants and other real textures. It’s helpful that for most of her designs she shows polymer examples. This one caught my eye. The pattern comes from her shingle cracked growth ring texture sheet.

Victoria explains that, “PearlEx was lightly rubbed on the out-y part of a silicon texture sheet and the clay was impressed. This textures the clay and transfers the mica powder at the same time. Next PearlEx was rubbed directly onto the out-y part of the clay surface. The clay was then rolled flat.”┬áSuper easy mokume gane!

      Wow. I saw that image come up on Pinterest with “shingle cracked growth ring” and hesitated to think it was polymer. Great!

          I’ve never heard “out-y” used for more than belly buttons. Great idea!

                    I use these texture sheets all the time. I always have one or two out on my worktable just for masking fingerprints, touching up the edges of pieces, etc. Indestructable and no release needed.
