Type of item: Accessory
Silver Precious Metal Clay, Liver of Silver Patina, oxidized chain
What was your inspiration?
I love the Buddha! I have them everywhere around my home & outside at my pond.
What are you most proud of?
That I actually made a bail even though it is not really the correct direction, but with a jump ring added it works just fine.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I made my own mold for this from a Buddha necklace I have. Getting the depth just right when you are creating molds is sometimes difficult , I practice with regular clay in my molds before I use PMC, & sometimes they still don't come out the way you expect them to. This one I had to fill in the back a few times because the mold was not level, but, you have to keep trying & it does get better.
