Project Description

What was your source for this jewelry project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Metal Clay Flash Drive Kit Link to website or photo www.metalclays.com/c/181/flash-drive-enclosure-kits Who is this project for? Unisex What are you most proud of? I did not give up even after screwing up three times maybe more- and that I have not quit attempting to become an artist though my skills compared to many are lacking. I will continue to strive to make new things and or make things regardless of how many I mess up and or break- What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be sure to follow the kit instructions and even then you need to be sure that the silver stays flat. I guess I have three that are not flat- or were not and am now having to reconstitute them back into clay-

Q&A with ARGrover

Jenny Vestal asked:
Oh my gosh, you got the kit! How was it? Your finished product looks great! Don't feel bad about the three tries. I needed to make a polymer stamp for a project this week (which I had of course already accepted money for) and it took me THIRTEEN TRIES! Being an artist is as much about persistence and recycling your mistakes (or renaming them) as raw skills. I've seen that kit, this was a very complicated project. Add at least another circle or two to the difficulty level!
ARGrover answered:
Thank you Jenny! I didn't think it was that bad as long as you follow instuctions. Hardest thing about it was getting the silver to stay flat and using the correct silver..PMC+ instead of Art Clay which I prefer most of the time. :) Thank you again for your comment! I figure if I can make it anyone can.. :)
