Beautiful work Lisa!

So are these soft rubbery like things or hard? Just wondering. I really like the one medussa posted. I could see that as a decorative wall tile, goes with my euro look decor. Ooh, I see grapes now.... maybe a pendant too.

Curlilocks, they are hard clay. Really durable. I have three now - they're all Bettie Page.

Yea these don't bend. This type of clay can be flexible but it usually occurs only in if they are in thin strips.

So does it look like it could be used as a decorative wall tile? I guess I'm wondering if it would look like wall tile or plastic-y? It's hard to tell from the photos on the site. I'm just wondering if I can have you make a wall decoration as well as some jewelry (after the holidays).

Mine are definitely not plastic-y at all. You could probably use a large one in that way, just as someone mentioned coasters. Cool idea!

The neat thing about this medium is that you can get it to mimic just about anything from quartz to jade to opal to turquoise. The list is endless. The only concern I have is that if the image is too large that I transfer I tend to get some buckling in the transfer and it doesn't come out as quite as smooth as I'd like it. But if you have a geometic or pattern in mind that I can copy, I could possibly use exclusively clay to copy it.

Nothing definitely in mind, just some ideas, now that it might work.

I like that design medussa posted. I'll look for some grapes designs. A set of coasters would be great too!

I am working on some new pieces this upcoming week that will look like glazed porcelain, and those might be appealing to you. If I like the results I'll probably put them up in my shop, and with these I can see them working nicely as some coasters. So many ideas, so little time!

This thread is going to make me cry. I took out one of the two pendants LisaAnn made for me and wore it last night. I still have it on. The sadness is overwhelming.
