Rachel and I had a fab day yesterday using the clay as I've introduced courses at the studio. It's only the second one I've done but it really is fab to work with this material.
Ann and Gaynor came and did a course a couple of months ago and they loved every minute of it. Bearing in mind it was their first time working with the clay I think they did pretty good. Here are some pics of their work.Ann made an owl from the silver clay and she was really pleased at how it turned out.

We used some silver paste and painted it on the back of some leaves and they looked really good with the very fine veins showing up really well.
We enamelled 2 of the pieces but I don't think you can see the colours very well on the photograph.
Hopefully I can introduce it more and more and include it in a mixed media session with the enamelling.
