I’ve only tried this technique, the Sutton Slice, a couple of times with some success. It didn’t turn out perfect, but it wasn’t a candidate for the scrap pile either. <G> Areas of one sheet made this fan necklace. Which just happens to be on sale in my Esty or ArtFire shops 🙂
A few months ago my pal Barbara Poland Waters hosted a swap where we traded decorated sheets of raw clay to do with as we wished. Fun swap !! One of the sheets of clay I received from Kathy Weinberg was decorated with the Sutton Slice technique and it was stunning. I had to immediately buy the Barbara McGuire stamp she used. LOL
I made a whole bunch of pendants with the sheet. The first pictured one I wore today and got the most wonderful compliments. One of the ladies, who works with clay occasionally, said “How come my polymer clay things never look that good” 🙂
I hope to have all 17 pendants listed in my shops by Friday. Just in case anyone is interested 😉
Sutton Slice By Valerie
Valerie Wallace, a wonderful person and artist (who is the exclusive supplier of my clear stamp line in the UK), shared a picture of the intricate Sutton Slice she recently finished. It took her hours to make, but oh so worth the work!! The stamp she used is from Lisa Pavelka’s Signature Series product line and I believe it’s 4″ X 6″.
Then the next day she shows off the sheet she made with one of my clear stamps ! I had no idea we could even do the Sutton Slice with clear stamps. What a pleasant surprise 🙂 I am wondering if this design could be trimmed to fit a business card case. Perfect design for a guy.
You can read how to do this technique at HGTV’s website. Lisa Pavelka made a business card holder in an old episode of Carol Duvall.

Here is an example from Sharon Solly

And this one by Julie Eaks is totally in my color palette
And last one 🙂 A untrimmed sheet by Judy (sorry, I don’t know the last name), but I love the sheet !
