I tend to spend a lot of time looking at clay stuff online. Flickr is a favourite spot. The latest trip lead me on this loop – first I spotted this cute fish by Ines. I found out that she’d written a tutorial on how to make the chevron pattern. The image with the steps is also on Flickr, here.
Random trivia: chevrons are a crazy popular trend right now. I could totally see this method used for all sorts of other decorating with clay if fish aren’t your thing.
