Here are some videos of the demo I did at Craftworkshop making mobius Christmas ornaments.
The first video has some information about using metallic clay, and I made a jelly roll cane.
Next I made a surface sheet with an Easy Peasy Extruder Cane thanks to Ron Lehocky (see this article about him – he’s made over 24,000 hearts to sell for charity!).
Finally I make the ornament and… it all goes wrong!
I used a different brand of clay for the second try ornament and I had some issues when I baked it 😦 I’ll try to do another post about that with images, but in the meantime I suggest you do the following:
- Put a drop of liquid clay on the tips before you pinch them to make sure they stick together
- Don’t rest your ornament on a tile to bake – suspend it from a bead pin or try to support in some way (perhaps with balls of foil).
