This has always been a little perplexing to me because needless to say, this is all well and good, but I am not as well known as Mel.
This all said, I did go on and when making clay pot cookers, I signed my initials and sometimes my initials and the stamp on the lower outside foot of the piece.
I am now doing sculpture. These pieces are not large, maybe 10" tall and do not lend themselves to a signature per say. I have gone back to Mel's stamp and use this as a stamp of signature as well as an adornment.
As you can see, this is an ongoing perplexing issue for me as well.

A friend made some lovely textured tile for her kitchen using smashed coffee beans, larger bits than coarse ground.
That is a great idea! You just gave me my inspiration for my stove back splash.

Like Neil said, just about anything organic can be rolled in/burnished in/pressed in, then either removed or burned out. Other stuff I've used and liked (but it may HAVE to be removed before firing) includes rocks, onion bags, highly textured fabric, rope, stencils, old computer parts, scraps of packing material, old crochet doilies... your imagination is your only limit!

Where do you find paper clay commercially? I have never used paper clay, because the process seems to intimidate me, but from what I
Thanks BigDave. I thought paper clay was great for sculpture for two reasons. First being as stated in the clay descriptions, is low shrinkage, but second an incredibly smooth texture for good fine details like you naturally get with porcelain. The grog confuses me. On this same note, what is B mix?
Thanks for your patience.
