Ready made textures are easy and a good thing for beginning students. I use ready-made textures and I make my own. I haven't bought any texture plates in a long, long time and I had some money burning a hole in my pocket. (How often does that happen?) So I ordered nineteen new plates and now I can't wait to try them out.
I'm hoping these new textures will entice former students to come in to my studio on Wednesday afternoons to play with metal clay and the new textures. It's always more fun with more people. Come on up!
