Here are the pics of the repairing evolution.
Pic#1: broken "tail" of the jadeite half loop.
Pic#2: upper part of the earring, lacks recreated with "jade effect Fimo" polymer clay begore baking.
Pic#3: ready to bake in the oven, the polymer clay is pale opaque green...
(the earring of pic2 and the two "tails" modelled on the earrings then removed for baking)
Pic#4: after 30 minutes in the oven at 110° Celsius.
The polymer clay became vivid and translucent apple green!
Superglue for fixing the "tails" on the jadeite, matching colors with permanent markers.
A careful filing and polishing will give the final look :-D
I'm very pleased with this Fimo jade effect stuff, the transformation after baking is stunning!!!
