So many of the things that I do require a base, for example the beads I made yesterday; today's project is no exception. I love to make bracelets of all types and today is bangle baking day. I start with a base that I bake on a coke can (the kids kindly provide me with all I need); I usually use scrap clay for that. Depending on what I want the size to be I add clay to the inside as well as outside. The green bangle has a stone like finish on the outside and the inside is scrap clay with a distorted cane pattern. For the silver bangle I added scrap on the inside and baked it again; it has a bit of a wild effect as a nice contrast to the rather plain silver outside. I liked this but it was too small for my hand. I think I will make another starting with the cane base and add on so it fits me. The outside is three extruded half-rounds, painted with copper acrylic paint and then covered with Gilders Paste (silver) and polished and sealed.
