I found some cake icing tips at a yard sale and bought them. I was hoping to find some way of using them in my claying adventures. Ugh I couldn't get the clay to push through the tips so I decided to try and get them to work with an extruder. It so worked with the Makins Clay Extruder. So here you see the 2 tools combined as 1 and a cupcake I made using the new take on icing tips. =)

I wanted to try the technique I have seen others do. You know the one where they have flowers and bees and butterflies all in a nice clean sheet of clay. Vblarney of swap-bot.com bought me the tut for my birthday from my etsy favorites and I finally got the chance to try it out. This keychain is one of my first attempts at the techique. I used my butterfly cane, a couple different leaf canes, a flower cane and a couple different colored skinner blend canes with black and white stripes around them (also bought by Vblarney). The keychain is on my etsy. http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=6195895
The very first project from this tech was also made into a keychain and sent off to Vblarney as a thank you. =)

The punk heart and the butterfly will soon be added to my etsy store. I was wanting to try image transfer but it really wasn't working for. Mostly because I don't have a toner printer. =)
I do however have a large collection of temporary tattos so I thought I would give it a go. I avtually like how they turned out. I also have more things I made with them on my flickr.
