You know how sometimes you see a technique being demonstrated and think. "Ooh, I need to have a go at that!"? Well, this happened to me with a faux dichroic glass technique being demonstrated using translucent polymer clay, gilding flakes and alcohol inks. I had all the equipment needed, so off I went.
So, my next step is to try again with foil rather than gilding flakes and perhaps also with paint, just to test the effects. I also need to try using stronger alcohol ink colours. I would love to be successful with the technique, so I shall keep trying.
