Flower Power!

I’m on a roll with bronze metal clay.  I’ve just made a batch of little flowers in different sizes ranging from 5mm to 10mm in size.  I’m using the original formula of BronzClay so they will shrink about 25%.  I have an idea for a necklace that will be filled with these little flowers dangling from sterling silver wires.  I’m always so amazed how raw BronzClay looks so much like terracotta.  These little flowers have dried throughly and now I’ll take a sanding sponge to them and go over any rough edges.  Then they’ll be ready to put into the kiln!
