        That's ace. I didn't know you could mix Fimo and Sculpey together.

          oh fantastic faux Snakeskin!

          I just love your project- the pictures are so clear and easy to understand too. Thank you for taking the time to do it.

          Talking of Mokume Gane....

          Did you guys know that it is starting to be called "Mokume Nendo" now instead?

          I didn't until the new Fimo Kits arrived with me last week and I found they had changed the name of the Mokume Gane kit to Mokume Nendo.

          It seems the metal workers were getting upset with us clayers using the term Mokume Gane (which literally means "woodgrain metal") as somehow they felt it belittled the complicated metal working process to use the term for clay also.

          So, Mokume Nendo (which means Woodgrain Clay) will be a term we see more and more I think in place of Mokume Gane.

          Well, you live and learn eh? I expect the ceramicists will now get upset about us using the term clay, as they so often do

                Oh how very kind of you. Any tutorial or advise is invaluable to us clayers.
                I think your snake skin is fantastic.
                Thanks again xxx

                  That looks fun, I like that you probably don't know what to really expect until you start shaving the layers away.
                  That one must have been a nice surprise - It is really effective and snakeskinny (nice made up word )

                  The tutorial pics are excellent, would be great to see any more you do.

                  Edit :
                  I had a little play (I was obviously going for realism with my colours!) - don't think I quite got the hang of it. I think I'll leave this sort of thing to the experts!

                    I remember a giant blow-up in Etsy about that - it led to all sorts of discussions on the fluidity of language and appropriation of words! Unfortunately for the metalworkers, I doubt the name will change for a long time ;(
