New Footprint Charms
This one was created for a special friend for her birthday. Her daughter's feet were a little challenging (or should I say her baby feetprint) ha ha. When I shrunk them down, they were just too light and the left one didn't even show up but at the top so I had to fill in with black to make it work. I am so thankful for photoshop software. I was able to keep all of the lines, etc and only darken what was already there. I'm so careful to make sure that the charm is a perfect duplicate of the actual print. That's what makes it so special. I am so thrilled with how this one turned out! I polished it to a super high shine and it has the birthstone embedded down in the silver. The Polymer Plate turned out perfect and the clay fired great. I couldn't be more thrilled. I made this one nice and thick and took a lot of time buffing and polishing. I'm having so much fun with precious metal clay. I hope you like it and I hope my sweet and dear friend loves it!
