Textured Rope Letters
Alphabet stamps, texture plates
Paint or metallic rub
The clay is rolled out in to long ropes and the words are laid on the art surface. Sometimes I will dampen the surface slightly for better adhesion.
Next I lay a texture plate over the clay to embloss words into the clay. I like the fact that they are not legible.
Now I let the clay dry. When dry I can paint or add a rub to the clay.
Here it is finished with a gold rub and embellishments.
Thanks and hope you can find a place for this in your art.
