White COPPRClay!

Posted: October 18, 2015 in Ramblings

Well.  White COPPRClay comes already in clay form, which is nice.  (Some other brands come in powder form which have to be mixed with water first, and I always seem to end up with the wrong consistency.)  A few posts ago, you saw a picture of a teardrop pendant I’d made with White COPPRClay, before firing.  Here it is after firing, and after six hours (on and off) in the rock tumbler with stainless steel shot, water, and Dawn dishwashing soap.  (The tumbler can only be run for 2 hours at a time before overheating.)

After firing. Shrunk by almost 1/2" in height. Pendant hole will need to be drilled out some more.

Here’s another piece I made at the same time.  I intentionally left some clay in the center square so it will support whatever kind of centerpiece thing that ends up in there.  I’m thinking of a porcelain button at the moment, but who knows.
