New texture sheet and Mokume Gane
I often admire other peoples Mokume Gane pieces but am always dissatisfied with my own. I’ve played about with the mokume gane technique a few times and tried various different colours and methods.
Finally I got round to buying some texture sheets and decided to have another go.

Not quite sure what I will do with it (she’ll probably cover a spoon handle you are probably thinking if you have read this blog for a while..) It still doesn’t grab me as much as some others I have seen but I quite like it. Colours are a bit wacky! I think I should of had more layers in my stack to start with. The texture sheet is pretty thick which means it gives a nice deep impression but only just goes through the pasta machine. Perhaps I ought to roll it by hand.
