This is a three part special blog series that shares with you some of the ways resin clay has changed the way I create wearable art. The picture above shows you a group of items on my table that I feel might work together. The question is how.
How can I join everything and still make it feel and look as though it has been soldered by a jeweler?
A few weeks ago I showed you how I made a mold of this doll half shape. I love my resin duplicates from this new mold.
Originally I had silver accents on the molded doll but after seeing it placed on the vintage brass component, I decided to add gold metallic wax instead. I can change colours dozens of time during this stage of the planning.
I started to narrow my selection of items that needed to be attached.
You can see here that I used Jewelry Clay in strategic locations and at various heights to attach my selected embellishments.
Anywhere I used Jewelry Clay I now cover with gold Pearl Ex. The clay is not really going to be seen, but if you were to see this piece from a side angle, the white clay would be visible. I will leave all of this to cure over night now.
