Two ready-to-finish white earthenware talisman faces
These faces from Earthshards are created from natural earthen clay dug from the ground, fired to a temperature of 1900F, and hand-finished individually with natural walnut ink and metallic enhancements. Unlike similar items made from air-dry clay that is unfired and plastic-based, these earthenware faces bring the feel and complexity of hand-built artisanship to your spirit dolls and other hand-crafted items, and will last for decades. Read on! These talisman faces range in size from 2-3" in height and are designed to be used as the focal piece of a beaded and be-ribboned talisman. The faces can be finished in any way that suits your purposes. I like to use a coat of walnut ink, wiped off on the highlights, then a metallic glaze. There are two holes at the top on each piece for attaching to a chain or ribbon, and four holes at the bottom to add ribbons and charms. I designed these pieces for the 2017 Gaian Soul retreat. If you need inspiration, you can see more photos of the pieces that were made at the retreat on my blog, SHARDS. Just paste the following link into your browser without the parentheses.
