SWD - Oh No! I Burned my Clay. Can this piece be saved?
In the last video series I created a tassel pendant. The ones you see are not my first attempts. I originally planned a bright, summery pendant with bright yellow, orange and purple. Almost a retro look. Unfortunately, because the clay covering is relatively thin, I burned and scorched the clay. The result was a sad, dark mess. The piece was destined for the trash but really, with the time I put into creating it, and the fact that I liked the shape, I decided to see what I could do to save it. So, I used bronze, heavy body paint, I antiqued it and added a bunch of Swarovski crystals for some bling. Added a gold tassel, and I'm happy with the result. So, see what you can do to save those not so perfect pieces. Here's the video on the process. Have you ever burned a piece? What did you do? Let me know in the comments. Hope you enjoy the video.
