Delft Clay Casting ~ first experiences

Firstly sorry for any crappy pictures but I was taking them fast because it was my first time

First of all, get the set with the DVD and then watch it!

If you haven't got the DVD then there's a very good set of YouTube vids by Andrew Berry...

 

Here's what I did to make the first of two ball ends for a bangle.

1) Clear your work surface, get the clay out and chop it up (I used a metal edge ruler and it was easy)

2) Make sure the clay is soft and mouldable

3) Using the smaller of the two rings turn it upside down (so the joining part is on the bottom)

4) Force the clay into the mould packing it tightly then hammer down the excess on the top.
