finding the *perfect* texture...

I love imprinting textures on the rolling mill. I particularly love organic textures. my friend at jewelry class gave me this webley thing to texture with and I just fell in love with it. I use it all the time but it's not going to last forever. I must find something else before it's runs out. but I can not find it anywhere...

one day, I found "web lace" that looks just like it (well on the picture anyway..) on Etsy. but even though it look similar, when I run though mill, it didn't look nothing like it!

my teacher recommended "cheese cloth". this is quite close and I love it! I have to get some more of those.

but best texture I found was "aluminum foil"! I just love the subtle organic texture and best of all, I can get it anytime in the store! I think I'll try combine cheese cloth & aluminum foil next time.

Happy Crafting:)
