My 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.
