While I am still not finished with the whole set (I am currently refiring 11 of them), I couldn’t wait to share a peek at these!
The first photo is a batch out of the kiln before they are tumble polished.
And a couple shots of a bunch (but not all) of the runes after polsihing.
I am excited about completing this project and consecrating and charging them!! I will be sure to share the completed set.
These look awesome! @katnabis, you are very talented.
Those really are great! You did a wonderful job with them. I wish I could do something like that, I have a woodburning set, need the wood, & need to find the woodburning set… when my oldest moved back in, all of my crafting stuff went… everywhere.
Oh wow! Those look great!
Oh wow What a fantastic craft to have! Those are beautiful!
These are gorgeous! You said you were refiring some, are the ceramic them?
Thank you @marsha @Amethyst @rachel21 @TheTravelWitch_Bry @christine13 ! <3
@Siofra I had thought about making a set from wood and entertained buying a woodburning set but it occurred to me to make it out of a material I’m already familiar with. Hope your woodburning set turns up soon!
@Torista They are made from Bronze metal clay. It works up like ceramic clay when it’s wet. After it’s dry, I fire it in a kiln to burn out the binder and they become solid metal. Sometimes I have to refire them to make sure all the binder is gone.
Oh that’s great that you’re already familiar with working with Bronze! You really did a great job.
As far as the set turning up… the basement needs cleaning first. Lol
@katnabis These are absolutely stunning!!! Can’t wait to see them when they’re finished!
