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.

Great job! I have yet to try making a mold, even though I have the supplies for it. Great advice to practice with regular clay!

This is wonderful. Is the figure hollow or solid? How much clay did it take to make?

Hi White Owl Woman, this is solid metal clay, I am not sure how many grams it is but I can check and let you know.

Thank you! This is solid silver metal clay, I am not sure of how many grams it is, it is fairly light though.
