Clay Pieces


A couple of evenings ago, I finally got round to making some pieces with clay.  I did some face moulds and some stamping.  For the key, I placed an actual key in the clay to get the impression and cut round it.  For the locks I stamped a background into the clay and again pressed the keyhole into it to create the impression, but then tore the edges of the clay and smoothed it over with my fingers.  I used a couple of colours of perfect pearls to colour some of the pieces with.  The faces were coated with micaceous ironoxide before baking, so if I want to add perfect pearls at a later date, I can.  All pieces were created from black soft fimo clay.

These are brilliant Sam, well impressed with your results. Think I might just have to make a mold of that key. Love the one in the centre - can just visualise that on one of your canvases.
Great to see you yesterday - Hugs, Neet x
