What an ingenious idea with the book covers, using clay to do that, this would never cross to my mind, I must admit that you manage to amaze me.

I've used it for book covers too, but those bezels are a fantastic idea. I hate soldering! Wonderful stop on the tour!

Wow! What a medium! I would love to learn more and get my hands dirty, lol!

Awesome post Lesley! Everything you did looks gorgeous!!! Can't wait to hear how the retreat went. : )

This blog tour offers a rare opportunity for us to see the truly staggering variety of projects that you can do with these products! I am constantly amazed and look so forward to seeing all of the blogs involved! I also can't wait to start the projects that I have been dreaming up in my little mind!

Kerin's book is wonderful as is the clay....just amazing! Crossing my fingers for a chance to win.

Just ordered the book this morning!

After seeing your bezels, think I need to run for this book! Wonderful pieces!
Great Tour....

Hi Lesley! I *love* your work and the way you use Apoxy Sculpt is awesome! Your "first pieces" (the bezels) are just beautiful - and your book covers are so imaginative too!
I am so happy to meet you through Kerin's online book tour and hope to take some classes as well!
This is a great way to meet new talented artists!
Thank You for your generosity!
(I posted on my blog!)

Lesley, thanks for sharing all of this great information about Kerin's new book. I've just recently realized the beauty of Apoxy Clay. Your projects are really cool, I can say that first-hand. :-)

Lesley, your pieces with Apoxie are fantastic! I haven't tried the bezels yet but I am going to because you have inspired me. Please enter me in your drawing on your site.

I posted on my fb Day Three (and bragged about you). :-)

Boy with each day I'm getting more excited. I definitely need to find out more about this epoxy clay.. Love your work... the book covers have my mind going a mile a minute

I am a huge fan of this book and I cannot wait to get my hands on some clay. I love your bezels and would love to try and make some! They are fabulous.
I would love to win some of these most awesome prizes!!!

Wow! What a fascinating medium. I've been going nuts looking for ways to make my own bezels. I'm having a blast getting inspiration from this tour. Thank you so much for sharing! Love your work!

I feel kind of like a premie...I haven't even begun to work in this medium. But I am unbelievably inspired with the work you guys are doing. Love your stuff!

Your work always amazes me and inspires me to say I can try something new. I still have the journal you made that I won years ago in a One World One Heart event!!! xo

Lesley your projects are gorgeous! I can't wait to get my hands on this book and learn more. Thanks for the great giveaways!
