Fired Up The Kiln
Saturday, February 16, 2013
Ok, got the kiln back on Tuesday and fired my first batch of copper metal clay. The results were...mixed. Some of the pieces were too thick and did not "sinter' or cook all the way.
There were a few that look ok and I did make earrings and a couple of necklace sets. There is one pendant that I goofed up the design but decided to incorporate it into a necklace anyway. More than likely it will be pulled apart and discarded. The designs are very simple, and I have to admit it will take me a while to get good at working with this stuff. I posted pictures on my Spark Page.
