Bronze Clay...

Ever since Bead & Button when we got the scoop on the new bronze clay, we wanted to try it out. Who doesn't love the warmth of bronze? So, while I was here I definitely wanted to see what I could do with it. To the left is a picture of my yield. I wanted to make really simple projects to get my feet wet. Working with the clay initially wasn't easy. The consistency of the clay straight out of the bag was pretty hard and dry to begin with. It took a lot of conditioning and prepping to get it to a nice workable state. If I were to work with regular PMC like this, it would totally fall apart. I made a couple of links, some chain and a bee coin. I can't wait to dive back in and make some more goodies!
