Back to the Drawing Board..

My copper clay beads didn’t sinter properly, so it’s back to the drawing board to try again. Some problems may be that I didn’t let my beads cool enough before doing Phase II, or maybe you have to let them cool in the charcoal before pulling them out? Once I work my courage up again, I’ll probably try the rest of my copper clay- for now, I’ll stick with my Bronzclay since I know my firing schedule works.



  1. Your bronze clay work is stunning. I love the colored patinas you’re getting!You are lucky to live in Monterey, it’s so beautiful there. The ocean is an inspiration to me. Thanks for ‘following’ my bead blog! 🙂

  2. Thanks, Karolen- your blog is wonderful since I can't make it to the torch right now w/ a 7 month old, lol. A baby monitor and night torching may be a requirement soon :>)
