More Copper Metal Clay

No patina yet...but here are a few pieces from Saturday. Since it was Valentine's Day I had to make at least one heart.


A little bit of color on this pendant.....


I was trying to make a bracelet with one long piece of copper but this piece cracked apart as it was drying because the back was stuck to the teflon it was resting on. I forgot that the bronze and copper clay shrinks more than silver as it dries. If it is stuck to the surface it is resting on it will tear itself apart.



And my crazy cow. He lost his right eye but I'm going to refire him and hopefully give him full sight again :))

Nice! I, too, am playing around with different bracelet forms, trying to figure out how to get that bronze clay to cooperate.
