Oak Tree Tile Trim, Part Two
This is part two of my exploration of making trim for my oak tree mural. I apologize on part one for the huge spaces between the pictures. There are some wierd issues with blogger (or I don't know what I'm doing) but there's only so much time in the day. I can't be using it to mess around with blogger.
After making the tool that will form the trim's profile, I made a jig that will hold the clay in place, as well as form the back corner:
And a picture of the forming tool IN the jig (this should clear up any fog):
The first trial run:
After letting it dry out a few days, it is firm enough to handle but still slightly wet that modifications can still be easily made. This is same piece on my counter. This practice piece is fairly rough and the final pieces should turn out much smoother as I will put more time into it.
But it works!
