What you will need

  • these are from a class I took locally using the Art Clay brand. I thought I would learn to torch fire
  • but
  • alas
  • they only do the kiln. So picked them up today and cleaned and added the patina. I will be ordering a torch so I can try that with what's left of my clay.

Jenny Vestal asked:
Those are beautiful! You've added texture AND done a multi level piece AND adding a patina, so that is wonderful. Yes, do get a torch, (and be sure to get a solderite pad or charcoal soldering block, too, to do your torching on). I'm glad you are in the class, you will have a wonderful time with your torch and clay!

A friend has already requested that I do a pair for her daughter's birthday! BUT I don't have enough clay left over, so will have to purchase more (oh, DARN, will have to make something else for myself then too!) !!

I love these, metal clay will be my next class.
KJewelry 120859 answered:
This is an EXCELLENT class and you will not be disappointed. Because of this class, I already knew a lot about working with the metal clay before the local class I attended. Like I said earlier, I was hoping my local class would show me how to torch fire, but it didn't, which was the main reason I took the class! Oh well, still got a finished product (and am waiting for my pendant)
