Metal Clay 101: Rolling Textures by Kris Kramer
To save you months and years of becoming a texture expert, here are some tips for rolling clay for texture:
-Fresh clay makes for the best imprints.
-Always apply non-stick material to all surfaces that your clay touches. This includes your hands.
-Try to roll either from the top down or bottom up with open hands in one smooth,continuous roll for the cleanest details.
-Keep your texture mats clean, and store them in a clean storage container.
