Before sharing my results from Lindly's class, I have to back up and tell you about a workshop I gave on mokume gane a few weeks ago. Participants were introduced to several different methods of mokume gane in polymer, one of which was the "hills and valleys" technique. I told the students that this particular approach to mokume gane was famous as the one Lindly Haunani uses. I was right - and wrong. The basic concept I presented is indeed similar to Lindly's technique. But she has taken it to a completely different level, as you will see in the samples. The yellow pieces on the left were the result of the process as I taught it.
This last shape has not been given a protective coating yet, so it appears more matte than the other examples. You can really see the hills and valleys in this piece.
Needless to say, I think her version of this technique is superior to any I have seen before. If you ever get a chance to take this workshop with Lindly, I can't encourage you enough. It is soooo worthwhile to get these effects!
