A couple more tins...

Hi All,

At Guild a few weeks ago Barbara taught us what to do with the ends of skinner blends. If you slice them into thin slices and then layer them onto clay in random patterns you can get some interesting effects. My two oldest nieces are in university and I thought the technique would lend itself to covering tins, so here they are.

The same skinner blend was used on two different backgrounds. I added some of my smiley face canes and I'm happy with the final effect. I've got ideas for how to incorporate this into all sorts of projects.
