The one on the left is Ivory and the one on the right is wood.
Ivory is done the same way, the colors are just different.
Continued from part 1
and here is part 3
All links will lead to my Hubby's on line store Clay Factory.I endorse this blatant plug. ;-D
You will need:
2 blocks of Opaque White Cernit
1 block of White Porcelain Cernit
1 block of Caramel Cernit
1 block of Champagne Cernit
Clay Slicing Blade
Here is the stack from the side so you can see the thickness.
Roll the length of the whole stacked sheets through clay machine on the thickest setting.
You will have a big long strip.
Press them together or roll with your roller. Not a lot just to tack them together.
Cut the sheet in half and then rotate one of the sheets horizontally 180 degrees so the cut edges are on the same side.
Roll the length of the sheets through the clay machine again.
Cut in half again. Stack one on top of the other.
I have a lot of cracks because I am stopping and photographing in between each shot and step. But... cracks are good, and this is some of the best faux wood I have ever made.
I was getting upset and I thought I'd have to re-shoot this all over again, but I decided to show you what really happens and when I was done it was gorgeous.
When I am doing this technique I am going through the steps one after the other and I have a lot less cracking.
The Cernit is really wonderful for these layered techniques because of the depth the porcelain effect adds to the technique.
Cut it off.
Stay tuned to part 3...
