Pumpkin pendant

I made this a few weeks ago for la_colere, as part of a Halloween switch witch swap thingy.

Preparing the copper.

I gave a base of opaque ivory colour and abused it for an antiqued look. I painted the pumpkin with onglaze colours over it, this is the first layer, unfired and unfinished.

Fired, the paint cracked over the distressed enamel.

I hung swarovski crystals from it with silver wire, and added a ribbon in red and orange.

Packing with coppery organza in the papier mache box I painted with orange watercolour and copper acrylic inside.

Binding with satin ribbon.
