New Tutorial Guessing Game!


While I'm working on my new PolyPediaOnline tutorial (quite a thick volume with 11 products and 10 videos) I want to play a little guessing game with you guys.

I am posting 2 partial photos of the designs.
The photos are tiny, I know, but that's the whole point! guessing!
Guess what you think it is, what technique it is - anything you think of!
Of course, I think it's easy :)

Everyone is invited to participate in the guessing game, I won't be commenting until the tutorial itself will be ready and posted here in the blog with the right answer (and full photos).
One of you guessers (no matter right or wrong) will WIN this tutorial as a GIFT! I will choose one of the numbered comments using a random drawing.

So, what are you waiting for?
place your guess!
:)

  7. Et bien pour ma part je pense que la 1ere est une cane formée en spirale et la deuxième, un jeu de texture ! (je croise les doigts!)

    ReplyDelete
  8. The first one could be a new cane of a butterfly.
    The second might be a basket-like fabric design.

  9. 1st-hard to see it clearly...mosiacs?
    2nd -looks like its run thru a crimper then
    glitter on the edge. I might be way off. lol.

  10. It's not easy... The first one like Coral, using graduating effect. The second one looks like with metal material in the middle.

  12. Such tiny pictures for aging eyes! But I would guess the first is twisted extrusions, the second some kind of 'ruffled' bead with a line of glittery clay to connect them. They both gave me an immediate feeling of textile.

  13. Coffee bean texture and ridged and smooth polymer separated by a beaten metal ring.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Hi! WOW O-O They seem to be mica shift technique, the second one with a fine metal part. Thanks! :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. You always keep us entertained and challenge us; that's why we love you and follow you.
    I think they are both cane work. Hope I am right, I don't like to be wrong. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  16. first is a small heap of canes ...
    second is jewelry or object made of textures with silver platted chain between both...

    ;-)))

    ReplyDelete
  17. small is one thing, but for those of us with very bad eyesight those are totally unrecognizable. no guess from me

    ReplyDelete
  18. First: a cane using basketweave.
    Second: metal clay joining two different textured colors.

    ReplyDelete
  19. @Kathi, I know they are small, I'm sorry, bigger photo will reveal the "secret"...
    but still I am taking your comment as a guess :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. I GUESS...part of some hair clips.
    The first represent a part of a flower, the second waves of a comb!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. The first one is a bracelet using stamps and the second one is a border for a journal page using a wave texture plate in 2 different directions and of course both incorporate some sort of caning technique LOL

  22. The first is like Ikat, coiled. The second is canes butted up to a pola dot line joining the two halves. The second couldbe the background for the Ikat coil.

    ReplyDelete
  23. the first: looks like a cane with skinner blend
    the second reminds me the textures of shells :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. hard to see, such teasing photos!
    Techniques with ripple blades?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Bargello twisted into a round form
    Wavy blade assemblage

  26. Posting on behalf of Sue -
    ***************************************
    Maybe it is a theme, as in Under the Sea. The first could be an anemone and the second a sea clam.

  27. Not sure about the first, some sort of caning, but I think the second is micro-mosaic? Thanks for the chance to win!!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Well, at least it isn't obvious to anyone but you! I am guessing extrusions on both, since they go together ==maybe a Halloween theme?

    ReplyDelete
  29. First can be one crab or degradèe cord cane and the second.....one pendant

  30. Oh my eyeballs hurt from looking at these so hard and so long. You are the Teaser Iris. I would guess the first one as some kind of texture technique and the second one a cane technique? Whatever they are, I'm
    sure they will be exciting as your creations always are. Can't wait to see them. Dixie Ann

  31. Hmm...the first looks like a twisted spiral of some sort and the second like ripple blade mica shift :-)
    Carrie.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Hmm - the first looks like a twisted spiral of some sort, and the second like a ripple blade mica shift :-)

    ReplyDelete
  33. The first one looks to be either some mosaic piece or a twisted spiral. the second looks like a mica shift created with a ripple effect stamp - with a metallic piece of chain or metal as its border.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Looked at the photos again more closely; the first one seems like strips rolled inside a sheet and the second one definitely looks like a mica shift technique but with the metallic bit in between the two colors not at the border as I first thought.

    ReplyDelete
  35. The second one could be the beginning of a jellyroll with two colors and a kind of foil in-between.
    The first one than could be a number of finished jellyrolls together, ready for use in any amazing project.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Wauuu, it's a very demanding decision :)
    The first looks like playing with something like bargello cane + Skinner blends and second one looks like some wavy/riple texture :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oh, that's hard. Maybe a ring for the first one and a bracelet for the second.

    ReplyDelete
  38. First one looks like a pile of gorgeous milk chocolate and white {or tan} striped rolled canes, though it doesn't look like there is a middle piece. The second one looks like multiple black and red cylinders or ripple cut red and black clay used for a beautiful pendant or pin, with a slice of glitter clay in the center. Can't wait to see the finished true project!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. The first one looks like porcupine needles so maybe a design using that and the second one looks to me like using a ripple blade to make a mica shift design.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Wow! So hard. I think the first is how to make a "shell look" or tortoise shell cane and the second, a chain insertion technique. Thanks Iris for the great opportunities you provide us with. Looking forward to finding out what you have been up to!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Well, too small for me to tell. :( But, if you made it, it will be fabulous!

    ReplyDelete
  42. fireflies swarming at night, and the really really red sea shoreline??

    ReplyDelete
  43. How about this I just give up can't see the pictures well enough to see so I give
    just waiting till you tell us
    Sam

    ReplyDelete
  44. FOR THE FIRST I WOULD GUESS THAT IS MADE FROM A BLADE SKIN CANE TECHNIGUE AND IT LOOKS TO BE A FLOWER. IN THE SECOND YOU PROPABLY HAVE USED EXTRUDER TECHNIGUE IN ORDER TO MAKE THE CANES IN THE MIDLE AND THEN YOU PUSH THE SHEET WITH A TEXTURE DESIGN.

    ReplyDelete
  45. its a cane and mics shift, I guess...

    ReplyDelete
  46. The colors together on the lower one remind me of a Monarch butterfly!?

    ReplyDelete
  47. The first one looks like polymer equivalent of chain maille and the second one looks like extruded tubes with translucent metallics...

  49. ok I'll guess..1st maybe a curved bargella and 2nd textured pc w/ added glitter or a type of shinny cord

    ReplyDelete
  50. I say its a translucent cane & a metallic one.

    ReplyDelete
  51. To me it looks like a mica shift technique with a twist and wrap for both - using different colors.

    ReplyDelete
  52. They really are tiny... the first one looks like a flower; the second one looks rather like a texture design...

    ReplyDelete
  53. I think that the bottom one is a close up from your Brocade collection.

    The top one looks like "snakes" you would use as trim around a piece such as the sandals in your 3 flip-flop tutorials, or your millifiori bugs, or your geometric mosquito necklace.

    My eys are aching from going through all of the pictures on your site! It took me about 4 hours to look at everything I could - I sure hope my work wasn't for naught!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Thie first looks like a variation of IKAT Millefiori Cane beads from your wonderful tutorial.
    The second could be a mica shift trimmed with cross sectioned Striped Cane. I can not make out any detail in the black part of the image.

    ReplyDelete
  55. The first one could be somethig made with micromosaic and in the second I see micashift or stamp texture. Anyway, sure you are going to surprise us as you made with your tiny purses of the brocade collection...nobody gave the answer, remember?

    ReplyDelete
  56. the first might have to be canning technique and the second with be texture technique :) so little to see ....

  62. ...anything more "guessing"??!!! I think it's a birds house, with swirl decorations!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I have looked and looked. The first one looks like a cane that CZC (city zen cane) did years ago...but too little for my eyes!!!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Very hard to tell. First--long strips of clay gathered into a flower? Second--a pendant made of clay cut with a wavy blade?

    ReplyDelete
  65. I think the 1st picture is a white, gold, and brown skinner blend wrapped in gold. The 2nd photo looks to me like several red and black canes separated with aluminum foil.?????

    ReplyDelete
  66. the first looks likes one tiny twisted extrusions of metallic clay, the second a ruffled ribbon effect of some kind with a cane slice between...hmmmmm very interesting but tiny!
