FIRE IN THE HOLE!! This is the very end of the firing when the carbon is still burning.
All of us gathered around trying to absorb as much as we can!!
A pair of what Hadar calls Mokume Gane, unfired. Hope to get them and several other pieces fired asap.
All my pieces just about right out of the kiln. Little bit of them buffed out to see if they sintered properly.
Nearing the end of the cleaning and polishing.
All finished, Baldwin's Patina added really brings out the different colors of the copper and bronze!
I'll probably call this Zebra Stripe?
This one is from one of my favorite buttons, I've used it alot and even have one in silver I've started enameling on. A very pretty and versatile button.
Copper with Bronze Inlay, from one of my favorite texture sheets I've used in many other ways before.
A bronze piece with just a few bits of copper inlay. I'll probably continue to work on finishing these, they look great but can be polished and shined a little more I think.
A great class, many thanks to Hadar and to Randi at the Ranch for making it happen and to all my fellow students, I had a blast!!!!!!!!!!
