The Buddha

Project Description

Who is this project for? Unisex 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.

What you will need

  • Silver Precious Metal Clay
  • Liver of Silver Patina
  • oxidized chain

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!
RosieMeadow answered:
Thank you!
Frances Tornese asked:
This is wonderful. Is the figure hollow or solid? How much clay did it take to make?
RosieMeadow answered:
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.
