When Lorrene Davis sent along the link to this artist I popped over to her website to see what she was up to and look what I found!
Davis, a metal clay Master Instructor, handcrafts and sells the Finger Brush – a tool she invented when she got tired of “Putting down the file, picking up the dry brush to save the precious silver dust.Then putting down the brush and picking up the file.Then repeating the whole process over and over again…… and over and over again.”
Cool beans. You can get one too. Right here.
Then a visit to Marsha Neal’s blog revealed a post about how she makes porcelain shards. I like the way Neal uses two wood texture plates to make the spiral ridges. I’m sure the texture boards can be used with materials other than porcelain. Maybe Miss Marsha will share her source for the serious looking texture mats?
In the meantime, although you can’t buy the texture plates from her, you can purchase the porcelain shards. This way please – booth #806.
