Process Video: How I Fire My Fine Silver Clay Gummy Bear Pendants

Hand-made Fine Silver Gummi Bear Pendants by Squibble Design from Squibble Design on Vimeo.

I have been meaning to upload this for a little while! This video shows what pieces look like before I fire them, and also the last minute of the firing process.

After the gummy bear has finished sintering and the burner has been turned off, it still glows red hot! I love watching the glow fade as it cools down. After the pieces are cool enough to remove from the mesh I then start polishing them by hand. This can take considerable time, but it is quite a relaxing task. The last part of the video shows several gummy bears at various stages in the polishing process. When they are removed from the mesh the finish is a matte silvery grey colour. This can be gradually brushed and polished away, and then I keep polishing until the piece has a high shine.
