art clay silver-licious
David Hughes came to our camp class today to teach the students how to make jewelry using clay silver.
[clay slip painted on (real) leaves]
[they rolled out some clay silver and used stamps, texture plates and cutters to make charms and pendants]
[syringes and cork clay to create lacy beads]
[David used a blow torch to fire the pieces]
[liver of sulphur oxidzes the silver]
[when polished, the impressed or stamped areas remain dark and the surface is shiny silver]
great week - thanks y'all!
