Create Beautiful Backs for your Jewelry

by Bev Gallerani

To make the backs of your pieces as beautiful as the fronts, use two identical texture sheets -- one placed over your rolled-out clay and the other under it; then exert even pressure over your clay 'sandwich'.  Be sure to roll out your metal clay at least two extra cards thick to account for the depth of the extra impression.
