Rainbow Patina


These earrings are the ones I made in the patina demo the other day. I love this look! There are so many colours glistening through. If you click on them for a larger size you'll appreciate what I mean...
Having looked at them again, I see I need to polish up the little balls back to silver to make them stand out.

That's an amazing patina you got there! The progression of color is very cool. I really like the simple design too. I wish you weren't a world away, I'd come for one of your retreats. My metal clay skills have all dried up. lol

Thanks ladies. I'm so very pleased to hear you like what's happening.
Libby, I bet if you start with a simple project like this one, those metal claying skills with juice right up!

Oh wow Mel, I am so itching to do the Contempory Clay instructors course with you. I just love the design and the graduated patina colours on the earrings.
