A couple weeks ago I came across my note again, remembered all of my clay and pulled it down to see what colors I had. Upon doing so I discovered a ball of two colors that I had swirled together to make what I think was going to be beads. Years ago. Have to say this stuff really keeps well if sealed. Anyway, I decided now was the time to order the mold and make some swirled cabochons.
This is what I ordered:
Ordered the Mum in the 15mm and the 10mm and the Rose in the 13mm and 10mm.
I decided to make a Mum 15mm ring first.
Filled the mold:
Smoothed it off with a flat edge knife:
Baked for 20 minutes at 275 degrees in the molds on a cookie sheet:
Several notes; I did fill up the rest of this mold and the others because if I am going to crank up the oven I am going to make the most of it. Also, I did not gloss it and not sure that I am going to. Right now I am liking the 'rougher' look. When I made a few clay pieces years back I did buy some glaze at Michael's but some of the recent online research that I did said that you could use Pledge Floor Future Shine since is basically a polyurethane. Also, you don't have bake in the mold. I did for my first time but next time I am going to turn over and pop out on the cookie sheet.
Here are a few of the other pieces I did:
Love how the grey and purple one turned out!
If interested the ring is in my Etsy shop and the four above will be listed as earrings when I get a chance!
