Experimenting with Mokume Gane Effects in Polymer Clay Video

Share this post

polymer clay mokume gane experiments tutorial video magicbyleahMy mokume gane addiction continues…

I made a number of jewelry pieces with the mokume gane created in my last tutorial video. As I cut and shaped I noticed that I really liked some of the patterns that showed up.

But their appearance seemed rather random.

So in this video I set out to experiment with the effects of layer thickness and tool size and proximity.

The purpose of this video was to get a better understanding of how different preparation aspects impact the final mokume gane pattern. This will allow me to purposely reproduce what I like and minimize waste of potentially beautiful patterns.

I challenge YOU to run your own experiments. And be sure to tag @Magicbyleah when sharing on Instagram and Facebook.
