I've been really curious about this tecnique shared by Shacchan - see this journal for the instructions - and finally today I've managed to give it a try :boogie:
It was fun, althought a little messy. I just need to try some more to find the perfect dosages!

Step 1
I mixed some light brown clay with about an half of water and an half of Fimo liquid, until I got a creamy thing (as Shacchan explained, it should look like a glaze). Then, I added the baking powder to the clay, proportion as shown, and mixed them:

Step 2
I made a baking tin with an aluminium foil (I didn't have anything to wrap the aluminium around, that's why it looks so weird!:laughing: ) and poured the clay in it (well, I poured it all over my worktop too! :D ). I baked for about 10 minutes.

Step 3
This is what the clay looks like, after it's baked. Gotta admit it looks anything but good :D

Step 4
The big moment! Seems like it worked - but I'm thinking of using a little more powder next time, to get a bigger texture.

Step 5
I painted the slice with acrilyc paints for a more 3d look. Oh yes I desperately need to improve my painting skills!

Thanks again to Shacchan for the super-useful tips! Can't wait to try this out again :giggle:

Thank you and you're very welcome! :giggle:
While I can't take credit for the idea, this has to be my favourite clay-related tecnique so far. You can achieve wonderful results, and it's really fun to experiment with it - it's such a versatile tecnique!
