Hi this is Becky Nunn with Nunn Design I'm the guest designer today with This is a part 2 video series called Casting A Bezel in the first video we created a mold to fit the bezel. In this video learn how to cast and create sculpted images inside the different bezels what you need for this video are some bezels we have the Nunn Design Patera line and you need some crystal clay and I'm working with the white I've already pinched off two equal sized balls of the clay and blend it in together and now my clay is activated and I'm ready to go in part 1 we created a mold to fit into a bezel and I had a different bezel for this particular one but it has the same circle dimension. It has a different bail but I'll still be able to work with this one here because it is the same dimensions. So this is how you can use the same mold on various bezels. So now that I have already mixed my clay I'm going to pinch off a small bit because this bezel it doesn't take that much clay go ahead and make a nice circle and pat it down into the bezel. I'm just using my fingertips to squeeze it over to the side edges and I'm slightly pulling over. And on this bezel I don't have any intricate designs on the sides but some of the other bezel do so these are good for starter projects. You don't have to worry about getting that Clay over into the side edges. Once I have a nice mound, pat it into the bezel the next step is creating the impression of this sculpted image on the bezel so what you do is place it down and I'm looking to make sure that I have it right on that circumference and my loop on top is right where my other bail was. Then I pick it up and I'm using my fingers from the back and on the sides to create that impression into the clay and how did we do there's an impression now if we didn't like that we could just pat down again and just keep on going until we got something that we really liked I had a little bit of the side there. I'm just slightly patting that down and making that smooth and now we have our sculpted image in our bezel and this is part 2 of our four part series.
