Ha! Third Time is a Charm for Torching Copper Clay

Torch Fired Copper Clay Pieces I already posted this same photo onto my Creative Clay Cafe blog! That means I am super excited… and also, the copper clay fits BOTH blogs! Enameling HERE, and clay there! It took three tries to get this right. Copper clay seems to be a little finicky both with temperature and torching duration. Be sure if you ever try it, you allow time for it. YIKES! But I love the results. I used some of my handmade earthenware clay stamps for texture (love the little dragonfly texture! I was an imprint of my daughter’s tiny dragonfly earrings from about 20 years ago!)… Yep, I save everything. I will enamel and torch these pieces. Hopefully, the enamel adheres properly. Photos will be posted when that part is complete. Have a great week! Welcome October on Tuesday!
