Latest stuff

These are a few of the tiles I've been making for the counter tops in the downstairs bathroom. They've been stamped and carved, then colored with Pinata Inks, cured and lightly sanded. I plan on covering them with liquid clay and curing them again. I'll also be pouring a layer of acrylic resin over the tops before installing them on the counters. The whole bathroom project has been a long one. I'll be sure and post the completed pics of the bath.. whenever we get it complete! LOL!!

This is the signature cane I made last week. CPD - Constance Pelkey Designs. I made a LOT of it and some of it reduced wonderfully, other parts, not so much. (shrug) It's all very usable in one way or another, though! I plan on putting a small slice of it on the backs of my works.

This top picture is of all the reduced sizes and the bottom is of the unpacked version.

Hi Connie, I've never seen a cane of writing/letters. How the heck did you do it?! :)

Thanks so much you two!! The bathroom project has been ongoing for months now! Thanks for the good comments and I will post pics of the finished tiles, eventually! LOL!!

Dave, think of canes like slice and bake cookies. You have to visualize the design in 3-d and then build it up.

I can visualize world peace but this may be beyond my skill level :) Very nice work!
