My Mom gave me a beautiful vintage coffee table with a solid marble top. I was over the moon until I unpacked it and noticed a piece of the wooden frame for the marble had a piece missing.
About a month later, while visiting my Dad in Florida we were shopping for paint for a table he wanted me to refurbish for him. I saw the Premo Sculpey and knew I was saved. I have, of course, made pendants and beads with Sculpey before, but I usually paint it the colors I want rather than using the colored clay. Just seeing the actual clay in Antique Gold made me think of the table.
I carved, baked and painted. And…
I’m happy with the color, but think I could have done a better carving job to match the shape of the relief pattern. What do you think?
