Finally scrounged the time to give this a try using this tute over at Polymer Clay Tutor using a piece of my son’s artwork. Middle: first test on a thin slab of faux wood veneer with black acrylic.

Been playing a little with image transfer using gel medium and inkjet prints. This is my second try with alcohol inks (and floor polish as extender): Here’s my first try: It’s getting better but I’m still not there. Wherever “there” is. LOL!
