Enameled Copper (Clay) Pendant

Copper Clay Pendant – dried, torched, cleaned and enameled


Well, I enameled one of the copper clay pieces that were shown in my last post. I’ve had it finished for awhile and kept it for myself (it is my first copper CLAY pendant after all…)
I used one of my clay stamps for texture and transparent enamels when I torched it. To me, it looks like a storm on a lake – rain in the top portion raining on a darker blue (water?) lower area.

I think I have worked out the bugs in my torching of the copper clay. I use butane, not MAPP gas as is used for the enameling – but it takes a long time for each piece… So if I like this well enough, time for a small digital kiln that can hold a temp. (Not like my ceramic kiln which has a kiln sitter.) The copper clays on the market are probably better off used in a kiln, but this brand was ok torched.

Back to work! Have a good week.
