Well, I've stayed off my torch this week due to my chest infection. Coughing into the flame is highly annoying when you are trying to be steady for precise dots! So I have focused my time on some metal clay work - specifically the Bronze Clay. My last cuff was something of a disaster - hidden cracks only showing them selves in the form of huge splits after firing. BUT never one to be deterred I tried a plain cuff - and had a play with a technique called Water Etching.
Its not perfect - but I think I like it! Its really nice way to get a unique design onto your work. Next time I experiment though I may do it with a smaller piece! This took me HOURS!!! I havent been able to find any other etched BronzClay work so I'd really love to know what you think!
