Cement and Precious Metal Clay

Finished Product!

This is one of the finished pieces of PMC with cement coloring.  I showed you the start of the project yesterday.  I was very pleased with the outcomes.  I love the texture of the concrete.  I just wish I could come up with something very original using this technique.  My brain is just not in HIGH CREATIVITY mode lately.  

Something exciting! I ordered a photopolymer kit today.  I'm so hoping to perfect the fingerprint technique using this technique.  The current process I'm using does not produce a print that is as defined as I would like.  Always striving for perfection! Will keep you posted on that.  Meanwhile, I have been busy with mother's day orders of the Brag charm necklaces and some fingerprint hearts.  

We just got back from a quick trip to see my son, daughter-in-law and our NEW GRANDBABY!  It was so nice to see them!  I have lots of pics and will be sharing soon.  xoxo
Happy Easter All!

Precious Metal Clay Pieces Await Color

Happy Easter Weekend everyone!  I'm so glad to get Good Friday off from work!  Three day weekends are the best!  Finally, I have time to work on some jewelry.  I've had this book for some time and from the very first time I saw the pieces with concrete used for color-I wanted to try it.  I ordered the concrete and color tint several weeks ago and I have been dying to try it out.

 I made these pieces a couple of weekends ago with the intention of filling the little cutouts with colored cement.  I feel like this will be a way for me to have color-that you know I love-with the silver pieces.  Just more opportunity for creative ideas with the pmc.  So, I worked on these two pieces this morning.  I'm waiting for the concrete to dry-then I will clean them up and post an after pic!
