kyratango
(395 items)

The brooch just arrived, kyratisation work on progress!

I tried first to make prints of the lone leaf with polymer clay, bake this "mould" in order to press polymer clay in it to get matching leaves...
Impossible to get them off the mould with all details without shattering... grrr!

So, only possibility was to cut two leaves in shape of the model, gild them with gold leaf before baking 15 minutes at 130 Celsius in the oven.

Will see if they are good enough to glue them in place...

To be continued :-)

UPDATE:
Kyratisation completed!
Well... Gold (real!) leaf color is more warm yellow than the existing leaves... But, I can't do better :-/

    Caperkid, thanks! And for the profile pic too! A dog found a denture in his garden, the owner took pics before dumping the thing in the trash, lol!

    Awww, Judy! Thank you :-)
    The moonstone has a strange cut: not a domed cabochon, but flattened on top!
    This makes the brooch looking like view of a pond among leaves under moonlight.

    See what I miss when I don't hop over into fine jewelry.
    This piece is stunning. I love the Garnet cabochons!
    Wish I had your talent... And patience.
    You have returned this piece it's former beauty!
    Must be so gratifying.
