For my first at home torch-fired enamel project, I designed some earrings for my daughter, who loves cutesy things like happy clouds and dead things like vampires, so this combines both to create a whimsical new creature: the vampire cloud.
First step, draw a design on paper and cut it out, then trace it onto 24 gauge copper sheet with marker. Cut out the shapes and file smooth. The internal shape of the mouth was cut with a jewelers saw inserted into a hole I punched in the middle and the eyes are simply different sizes of hole punches.
After cutting out the shapes, I dapped them a bit to make them more cloudy.
The raindrops are attached with long twisted copper wire and handmade sterling ear wires complete the project, then they're off to their new home!
