I've been reading Katie Hacker's blog about the taping for the next episodes of BB&J. I was really excited to read her entry today--she mentions a new product, BronzClay. What fun to have a new type of metal clay to play with!

I saw a demo for this, and let me tell you, it is totally cool. It has a much higher shrinkage rate than other metal clays, but with calculations and some experimentation that isn't going to remain a challenge. The look is just fabulous, and the cost is quite comfortable. Plus, the colors that a small torch brings out is worth its weight...in bronze!
Though it's true the show doesn't air everywhere, Beads, Baubles and
Jewels can be found online you can
buy DVDs of shows there, too. I've taped several project demos on the
air now so please let me know what you think. I'll soon be taping more
mini lessons for next season along with the editor in.
