could carve it in wax and then cast it, but it would take too much time.
I rolled out the clay
4-cards thick and then used the prototype to trace around it,
so I could get the same shape and size.
I cut out the shape and
dried it on a light bulb to get the dome I wanted.
I sanded the edges and
top. Then I carved the design on the left side.
I located where I wanted
the center stone to sit, cut the hole for it and started
adding my texture down the middle using PMC paper chips.
I cut areas for the two
smaller stones and then fired it.
Now I am
working on the back side of the pendant adding a place for the
center stone to sit on. Next I will send the client a photo and
gain approval before I continue.
