sherri1One of my favorite new Sculpey  products are the Landscape Texture Sheets. You get 2 texture sheets in a pack,  one has 6 mini textures, the other is an all-over floral pattern.  I've found that it's an easy way to add designs to my clay ring dishes.  The sheets are transparent, so it makes it simple to line up the patterns.  For the underside of the dishes, I use a bit of both texture sheets, to create my own unique look.  The best part is painting the dishes, I enjoy painting, so it's great when I can combine it with my love of polymer clay. I use pearl acrylic craft paints.  It's fun experimenting with new color combinations too!
