I'm quiet this week as I'm away with my family. But I just thought I'd share with you this beautiful Lentil bead made by a student on my BronzClay class last week. I just LOVE the patina on it! It seems that the items at the bottom of the firing pan turn a lovely golden colour, where as the pieces toward the middle and top are more likely to turn shades of purple or blue. There is a lot of information out there on the BronzClay - and its excellent. I'm reading over all of it once again, but because I havent yet encountered any problems with firing etc I'll be sticking to whats worked for me so far. I am however looking forward to getting home - and continuing to experiment.
