I'll be making more of these !

Yesterday was "prototype day".  I dug out my PMC supplies and went to town ! I REALLY enjoy working with PMC (precious metal clay)  For those that don't know what PMC is, I'll explain it in a nutshell (or an acorn cap !!LOL)  You start with "clay" that is made up of fine silver and a "binder" that keeps the clay together. You roll it, texture it, then shape it into anything that you want. After it is dried completely, you pop it into the kiln at 1650 degrees for 2 hours. The "binder" is burned out and you're left with a piece of pure (.999) silver. VERY COOL !!
 This is what your pieces look like out of the kiln.
