Using some buttons and plastic reproduction cameos that I've got in my collection, I experimented with making some little copper replicas from CopprClay. They were very easy to make, because I wasn't trying to get a smooth perfect edge or finish on them...I wanted them kind of rough and heavily patinated.
1. Using the usual selection of tools, plus some polymer clay for mold making, I followed the instructions that I had learned before for working with and firing the CopprClay.
2. Once they were fired, I used the patina technique discussed previously.
