Hi Katie, the Sutton Slice link is not working, it takes me to the faux dichroic tutorial too… thought you’d like to know.

Hi Katie:

When I try to use the link mentioned above “CLICK HERE” to send me your photos. It doesn’t link anywhere. Is there another way to e-mail you my photos?

Is there a link to see what other clayers did for the challenge?

Very Respectfully,
