The cow print slab starts off with a custom blend of an off white hue and black clay. Once the clay is mixed and conditioned each cow spot is hand cut from the black clay and strategically placed on top of the off white base and then flattened using my favorite Lucy Clay machine. A sheet of sandpaper is then placed over the slab and gently pressed on with a roller pin to achieve the grainy overlay texture.
The snake shedding start off with translucent polymer clay. After conditioning, the translucent clay is rolled up into thin snake-like strings of clay and are wrapped with a flat sheet of white and pearlescent clay. The white enclosed snake-like strings are then carefully compressed into a cane multiple times.I don't stop there!To create the slab from which the shapes are cut out from, the cane is sliced up. The sliced pieces are then organized and adhered into one large slab. Shapes are then cut out using my collection of shape cutters.
Once baked, each piece is sanded, hand drilled, assembled, photographed and packaged by me. If you would like to see more about the process, take a look at my reels on my Instagram page: @virauful.
