Ahhh, now this is how it's suppose to work. I just can't seem to get the bronze clay to do what the silver clay does for me. This mezuzuah case was fun to make and didn't fall apart at all after I fired it! I just wish the silver was less expensive and so I could make more outrageous designs and not worry about wether they would sell or not. I would also like to reach more people, but asking them to spent $185 is a lot these days, even if it is a totally unique handmade piece and is solid silver.
