A friend of mine, Joan Tayler, just created some texture plates that are available in her Etsy shop. Since I love playing around with textures I wanted to give them a try. I used the Teapot Tempest texture to create these antiqued tea cup buttons for a custom order request.
I really like creating with this type of texture sheet as you can use many parts of it and come up with a different look each time. I think they will work great for mokume gane as well and will have to try that next.
