Japanese Roof Tile by flightresponse Japanese Roof Tile by flightresponse
A combination of a Japanese roof tile cap and an Onigawara [link]
Measures 2 3/4" in diameter.
Painted in a faux stone finish with glazes and acrylics.
This was a trial for me using an air drying stone clay. I didn't find it to be a bad experience at all.
I do need to work on my symmetry. I could use any pointers if anyone is willing to share.

Thank you my friend! lol! I guess it's good that this one didn't take a year to make then!;)
The thin layers on the top set hard within an hour. The thicker layers set over night. It's pretty quick!

That does sound like a super cool idea! :) I can almost picture it in my minds eye.
I need to get a piece done that I've been researching first though.
The research part takes too long in itself! I have a few ideas for a couple pieces a turnin' in my mind.
I've been very inspired on my last trip and can't wait to start on them.:D :D We will see how quick I am this year! Haha!

Very tight :D such a small size too. I never did get the hang of self drying clay, i'd rather make a mold than learn it (must be an old dog thing ;P

As always, I complain about my time, this took me waaaay too long to do for being so small.
I had to figure out what kind of tool I could use to sand and carve all of those tight little areas.
Found my mighty Dremel and used the tips on it, minus the tool itself. lol
I didn't mind it but I might be trying another medium. I'd like to see what works the best for me.
