Retooling

I was about to throw out an empty Pringles can when I realized this may be a perfect tool for bangles! Since closed circles don’t shrink (hardly at all) in Bronzclay, maybe this will save time and effort. It was covered in press’n’seal Glad saran wrap carefully so there weren’t any wrinkles. The top had a slight lip that would impede release so that had to be cut- et voila!- a cheap-o bangle/bracelet shaper. Now I’m on the look out for things in other sizes that can be used as molds, etc..
Hopefully up later, more bronzclay beads. The kiln is running and I’m looking forward to what comes out.
