I have recently been told about precious metal clay. Wow. The concept amazes me. The possibilities are endless. Then I found out the price. *sob* $65 for 18grams. I imagine that is one, maybe two pendants. Still, I have a big Birthday coming up. So I spent a week searching for information and watching tutorials only to end up discovering that large ceramic kilns are not recommended as the temperature varies throughout them. *bigger sob* Ah well, back to reality. Here is the latest out of the kiln...

Some finished things

So here we have the completed owl for one friend and elephant for another friend. I am quite pleased with the results. I decided to go with the natural colouring to highlight the shape rather than being distracted by colours. Hmm, I'm really loving the effect of lighting I got in the owl photo.

When I think back to my first owl, I realise my aunty was ripped off. This one is a vast improvement. I'd better think about making her another one.
And just for something different here is a bowl finished with tomato red glaze, a colour I have never used as it's just not me. But I'm quite enjoying the change. I like the flecks of green showing through.
