Oh my gosh this is WONDERFUL! I've been a mixed media artist for many years and have always wanted to make special pieces of clay to put in my work and to make some jewellery for myself but down't own a kiln, nor do I want to buy one, I thought my only option was air dry clay, which has some strength , but nothing close to baked clay.

Now I know I CAN bake my clay and not have to worry about the integrity of the pieces in my work! It's a whole new world for me! THANK YOU! I love the jewellery you made and can't wait to follow in your footsteps. You are an excellent artist. A real artist is one who is patient and knows that the prep-work is where all the real work of art happens. Good Instructible.
