How about this reverse mokume gane from Bulgaria’s Maria Ivanova for a Friday brain teaser? Maybe you’d call it a combination of mokume gane and backfilling. Maria calls it painting with mokume gane.
Look at her quick visual tutorial and you’ll get the gist. That’s how this simple flower and her Lady with Flower pendant were done. Does this twist on a familiar technique start some wheels turning?

OH man, I will have a lot of fun experimenting with this. Though mokume gane is still one of my top favorite techniques, it has gotten somewhat predictable and boring. What a great new way of doing it!

Thank you for the sharing of my work,Cynthia !I really enjoy to work in this kind of mokume gane.Every time think that can be more complicated “painting”.Hope you like it!
So simple and beautiful necklace. Very nice tutorial for as beginners!!! 😀
Very similar to the Sutton slice only the artist gets to decide on the image. Nice work, Maria!

Really interesting–in theory, one could layer colors over a base, Deeply “draw” into the clay, and then create a controlled image—I like where this could go! this could get very complex in a hurry. So cool.
very beautiful necklace and thanks also for the wonderful tutorial!

I like the simplicity your pendant…remind me of art from the 1960’s…
