As part of the Ongoing Ornament swap I decided to try my hand at “painting” using polymer clay on an ornament for @Lynx2Lancer.
My rules were simple: the entire piece had to be clay, no actual paint whatsoever. I love working with clay but this was my first attempt at this particular style.
I started with a metal round as a base and created a marbled clay background to cover it. For the rest I just rolled clay as thin as possible and then began layering and blending it.
The end result is a bit impressionist but I really like the dimensionality.
