MOGUME GANE TUTORIAL
Roll out several sheets of different colors, cut them into 1"x2" pieces.
After pushing, rolling and sliding for about 10 times, this is what it looks like. The more you slide, the more rings of color you get.
At this point I would roll it to the shape that I like, poke a hole,bake, sand and buff. Well, you know all the routines.
Here's how to make rings
This is how I make my rings. I used 16 gauge silvered wire. Wrapping it around ring mandrel, or what ever you can find around the house, 3 times. The wire is quite soft and easy to bend. You can use Sterling silver wire if you want. It probably looks better but a lot more expensive. Curl both ends up and tie the top part with smaller gauge wire. Roll a thumb size ball from Black clay and push it down to the ring. With a pea-size ball of clay, cover the back of the ring. Smooth and reshape the ball. Let the clay sit for a while to firm up. Decorated it with what ever you want. Have fun!
The second row are the beads after ALL the colors were put on, then you can press the powder on to the bead (with your finger tips, do not roll with your palms) and lightly blend. Lightly!
