Comments from the voters:

·         Such great ideas!
·         Wow, what an inspirational challenge this month! I've never made plates before and I was very impressed with all of things that could be created with them. It seems like a great way to get something beautiful out of your scrap clay!
·         Always love to see the variety of work every month.
·         Beautiful, amazing and inspiring work by all!!! You guys rock!!
·         I choose the cat because I like people who think out of the box and the other two because they are just very pretty even though I think the bronze would maybe even be prettier in black with a contrast in colour.
·         1 Loved the colors here. (#5) - 2 Liked the way the texture plates worked for this. (#7) - 3 Liked the change using texture on a necklace. (#9).
·         Fun to get ideas of possibilities of creating my own stamps some day.
·         Fabulous entries!
·         These textures really show off what you can do with polymer. They are all winners!

·         Beautiful entries. Enjoyed going to individual sites to see process.
·         I need to make more picks because they are all fabulous.
·         Too many good choices! Some really innovative hand created textures--inspiring!
·         Congratulations to everyone who entered this month’s challenge. It was very interesting to see the variety of handmade texture plates and the beautiful finished pieces that were made using them. Awesome works!
