This unique pin is a great exampie of what you can do with scrap clay. The artist put together scraps with a nice color scheme and then rolled them through her pasta machine. She added digital art using a liquid polymer clay transferring technique and framed her piece with a clay bezel, which is formed around metal cutter shapes and baked. Instant art!
Create your own double-ended pointed clay tool for positioning and pressing stones into clay. Using a Dencil sharpener or 220grit sandpaper, sharpen both ends of a wooden dowel to a dull point. Shape two oay balls into pointed cone shapes. Press one over a zz;/e\ end. Bake as directed and cool down. (Wood Ts safe in an oven at this low temperature.) Press the »raining clay cone over the other end of the tool. Do not bake this; this is the raw clay end you will use to pick up and position flat-back stones.
