For the last couple of months I've been collecting the things I need to start Pewter Casting. I found this tutorial by Anvil Artifacts that does it in a different way. I still intend to start casting in Pewter but right now I'm having fun playing with this technique using Lead Free Base Metal.
Here are a few of my very first pieces.
And I love headpins like so many of you out there do so I had to try some headpins. I took some polymer clay pieces and made molds of them and then cast them.
Included are 2 pine cone tops I recently molded and I'm making some Copper pmc pieces from them as well. But while I was looking through my molds to see what I might be able to play with these seemed an obvious choice and they turned out well.
I couldn't resist using the little round Ammonite headpins to make earrings.
I added some of my favorite little O'Sullivan beads and a tiny bit of Sari Silk.
