T & I have been working tirelessly making gorgeous new pieces from precious metal clay for the HuntingDragons etsy store. The pieces are made, fired, brushed and tumbled. But there’s one more important step. Today T & I spent the afternoon adding patina to our fine silver pieces.
We used a new cool product, appropriately from Cool Tools which is liver of sulphur in suspension. You add a few drops to warm water and it’s ready to go. We tried out a new technique, painting on the patina on and dipping to finish. To create depth and shine to them we used another cool product which is called pumice powder. You wet a finger and rub it on and then polish it off or wash it off. I think the results are fabulous. T isn’t selling his Minecraft Creeper pendant… bet you can see why!
