I know I missed an entry yesterday but because I've made a resolution to go to bed early, I had to skipped yesterday's entry. My skin's been breaking out like crazy.... and I've got a few wedding dinner to attend next month! ..... -_-
Sleeping late always causes my skin to breakout like nobody's business...... :(
Anyway, that's not the topic for today.
Since its inception, precious metal clay/metal clay/silver clay has not impressed many of the conventional silversmiths and has earn a reputation as the jeweller's Play Doh! LOL....
This is why!
Is that not Play Doh? :P
Doing it the conventional way would require me to carve on metal sheet and carving alone would take me yonks to master but metal clay allows me to come up with something impressive (ok, maybe not really impressive but seemingly impressive :P) in mere minutes.
When I first show it to a fren, she thought I carved it out or something.
I told her, heck, no! I can't for the life of me carve anything! I remembered even the piece of wood that I was required to carve during art class back in school days had the help of grandpa. Now, my grandpa CAN do real carving but not the granddaughter! :P
So, do you see how just anyone can make silver jewellery now? *rolls eye*
But seriously.....? The above is just MY work lar...... LOL.... :P
It's rough and unpolished and so obvious that it came from a mould! LOL......
THIS is the work of a metal clay artist.
