CRAFTCAST Celtic Knots in Metal Clay with Donna Penoyer

Celtic Knots in Metal Clay

100 minutes

Join one of CRAFTCAST's favorite metal clay teachers, Donna Penoyer, and learn how to weave flexible metal clay to create Celtic knot jewelry.

See how to break down a knot image into simple parts that can be made separately, then woven together.

You'll love Donna's tricks for making parts by hand, as well as by cutting them with a Silhouette Curio.

Then see close-up how Donna weaves the metal clay to create a continuous knot design.

**BONUS** Also learn to create a "faux weave" using the Silhouette cutting machines.

Ms. P shows her tips for sanding, firing and finishing that will give your piece a professional look.
