If you've every been to a class with Joy Funnell, you've probably used these and know she absolutely loves them...and now, so do we! This is one of Joy's very own signature 'Joyful' designs and we're thrilled to be able to share it with you! She's also designed a few more which you can find here: Tangles of Joy, Whirls of Joy, Whirls of Joy Reversed.
Just coat the paper generously before use in a little olive oil, to ensure it doesn't stick to the metal clay. You can use these textures with silver and base metal clays. Ideally keep separate papers between different clay types, to avoid any cross contamination. This is especially important between base metal clay and silver clay.
