Does anyone here do this? I am dying to try- I have a couple of pieces that were made this way and I love them!!
Have any of you done a course? Or just online tutorial/ you tube-ey stuff?
I would just be doing it as a hobby- maybe make a couple of pieces for birthdays/ christmas etc, but it looks a lot of fun!
I am interested to hear how others have got on with it!

check out your library for books on the subject.

or buy some off Ebay. - there you can also find all the materials, tools you need.

not tried yet, but seems fairly straightforward based on what I read about it.

no doubt, some people with experience can advise you better. good luck!

I have done a couple of courses. It s really good fun but expensive. The stuff shrinks when fired about 20%. I recomend a course.

I'd definitely do a course, it's so expensive that I couldn't afford to just play with it and experiment too much. I do the fingerprint jewellery around Christmas time but find it quite difficult to work with generally and prefer normal silversmithing (you can take your time a bit more as if silver clay dries out you can come a bit unstuck). But I'm constantly impressed by stuff other people have made! Good luck smile
