And we did not have to call these guys-too bad!
I have wanted a kiln for so long and I finally purchased one of the Paragon jewelry kilns back in November. I had so many hand stamping jewelry orders that I decided that I would not try to use the kiln until after the holidays. I was so anxious about using it....I don't know why. I just had visions of burning down the house or using up all the electricity in the neighborhood and causing a black out or something......really. I don't usually get this alarmed about something but for some reason I was just anxious about it.
I finally tried it out last night. I had already done much reading and watched some online tutorials so I had no more excuses! I did it! I first fired one item of pmc-an OM pendant like this one. It turned out good so I fired a little tray of items. I can't show you them yet because I have to clean them up. Maybe tonight I can show you. Anyway, I am thrilled because it was really easy and uneventful! Kinda sad though, cuz it would have been nice for these guys to show up! LOL
Here is a collection of pieces I made previously with the torch. Now I'm "fired" up! I just wish that PMC was not so expensive!
