I’ve heard about this technique, but this photo is the first time I’ve seen it in action. Patricia Weikersheimer created her “Party Shield”by drawing a doodle using Tulip brand puffy fabric paint, then pulling a silicone mold from the doodle. The mold was used to impress copper clay from Hadar Jacobson to create the finished piece. This concept is quite intriguing to me, and I think I may have to run out and buy some puffy paint!

Patricia has photo gallery on the Yahoo Metal Clay Group “Gallery 2”, but you’ll need to be a member to view it. Her work is featured on the Tall Grass Arts Association site, and Tonya Davidson featured a photo of Patricia’s very efficient workspace here.
