We will VERY CAREFULLY create a mold of a real sand dollar and use that as to set up the texture for a simple, organic silver pendant. We will attach a hidden bail, fine tune and dry. We will kiln fire as we clean up; leaving only polishing and patina to finish. Attach your rubber cord and wear it out!
There will be a small amount of basic information in class to help you with your project. To get a full background on PMC, you need a full intro workshop. This may help you decide if you want to pursue that. You will learn how to make a reusable mold, measure PMC thickness for your piece, use your mold, build and attach a sturdy hidden bail. You will also create a small personalization to add to your piece. After firing, you will patina and polish.
