Branch and Flower Metal Clay Hangers

Branch and Flower Metal Clay Hangers

Design by Geneva Perkins

Free-form, kiln-fired hangers fashioned from bronze metal clay that are perfect for holding and displaying glass artwork. Tips are included for mixing and working the clay, which shrinks as it dries, making the patterns that are worked into it stand out even more. Various tools can be used to add detail to the clay before it is fired in the kiln. This project is finished using patina and copper patina.
