Happy 10th Anniversary, Twisted Stitchers!

The Twisted Stitchers art quilt group met at Julie's house for a 10th Anniversary party last night. We shared a wonderful Mexican pot luck meal and played with her darling pups. 

I'd been holding on to a package of PMC (precious metal clay) for a couple of years. Julie has been experiment with PMC and encouraged me to bring mine to play with. It's so fast!

A 16mg package of PMC3 yielded all of these charms.
The larger two in the foreground have been burnished.
The two circles to the left have only been brushed with a brass brush.
The whiter ones toward the back are straight from the kiln.
They baked at 1200ยบ for 20 minutes. So after an hour, including warm-up and cool-down, I had all these fired pieces. Very fun! Thanks Julie!
