This second set was made a bit differently. I rolled out the layers of clay so they were quite thin, then pressed a rubber stamp into the clay. I only needed to shave off a thin layer of the clay to reveal the design from the stamp impression. This method only produces one sheet of design, but it allows the user to make an impression that imitates the picture or design on a rubber stamp. In this case, I wanted a high shine, so I covered the baked pieces with Magic Gloss for that extra depth and shine.

A Bit More Mokume Gane
I have a couple more pieces I made recently while on the mokume gane kick, and wanted to share them here. This first set is made using a polymer clay stack of alternating colors, pressed with various objects, then sliced thin. I really liked the sea blue-green color I custom-mixed and the way the design turned out. I decided to leave the matte finish. One of the polymer colors I used was the black glitter accents from Premo! and the sparkle and shine from that color contrasts really nicely with the matte of the blue-green and cream colors I mixed.
