RE: Clay Relief Plaques -Egyptian Eyes photos

We only used the colored Sculpey for the details and mounted them to a rolled
out piece of white Sculpey, which is less expensive. We then cut out around
them. I've posted two pictures here:

I need to admit that these are NOT my students' work- I photographed them at a
Northwestern Ohio student art exhibit & "liberated" the idea. I wish I could
thank the teacher, but I do not know his/her name! I think they were from the
Toledo area, so if anyone knows, I'd like to give credit where credit is due.
