Southwest Switchplate


This was the first switchplate I've made. I used a cheap metal switch plate as a base.

I made a Skinner blend of yellow to orange to blue and then placed a sheet of it over the switchplate. I cut out the holes for the switch and the screws and then placed the coyote, cactus and lizard on it.

Once the plate was baked, I gently pried the clay off, put down a layer of glue and put the clay back on. I could really have used just the clay as the switch plate but I had used a fairly thin layer for the skinner blend and didn't want to risk cracking it.
