I have been making silver beads. Hollow forms take a while to make because of the drying time. I used cork clay for the centres and left these to dry for over two days. Then it needed layers of silver paste, each layer has to dry before you can add another one. I have now embellished them with silver and cubic zircona. I hope to be able to fire them tomorrow if I'm happy with them and they have dried completely.
I'll keep you posted!
