Surprise, surprise, surprise...Mokume Gane pieces :D
I recently purchase Barbara McGuire's "Extreme Golden Mokume Gane" DVD...and I love her version of mokume gane. (You have to get her Shape Stamps also...they are marvelous.)
So, you know I have this love hate relations ship with the sanding phase of polymer clay. I hate the sanding process itself, but love the outcome of a smooth easily buffed piece. Well, I've found a workaround....2 part epoxy resin. I love this stuff.
I use two thick coats to get a glass-like appearance on the pieces.
