How can I give dimensional shape to my Metal Clay pieces

 

Once you texture your clay and cut your piece, it is time to dry it. You can dry it flat or you can give it a shape you like. There are a lot of different ways to do that, again you need to use your imagination.

 

For flat pieces, just put them flat on a heated surface.  Tip:  put over the piece you want to dry flat, a small tile or a small piece of glass in order to prevent the edges from wrapping.

 

For other shapes, you can use drinking straws under your clay to give it a wavy shape or you can dry it on a bulb in order to make a small bowl.

 

Another nice shape can be formed by placing your clay to on a drinking glass.

 

You can create cores with Polymer clay, bake them and use them to support the shape you want for your piece.

 

Always remember to put some badger balm or olive oil on the supporting core you're going to use.
