Recently, I tried to sandblast a blank ceramic mold, you know, just to see what would happen. Wowww. The results were much better than expected! Below is a necklace using the sandblasted ceramic process that is being published in Belle Armoire Jewelry, September 2015. For the magazine, I give a tutorial and have included it in this post as well. I just love the rough cut edges the sandblasting created and how the glaze pools in the crevices.
Here are my steps.
After sandblasting, I then tried to use the mold as a stamp for clay.
Using the sandblasted stamp created lots of high and low relief patterns that I absolutely love. I plan on using this technique in many more designs.
Thank you for stopping by!
