HattieS QuikArt Ring Shank Templates - E
HattieS© QuikArt™ Ring Shank templates are great for creating ring shanks for many design styles. The template forms a narrowing shank on the underside of the ring and the joint of the ring on the BOTTOM of the shank. On one end of the template you will see a ring size range pointing to a pair of lines. All of the openings have a corresponding indicator mark on each end of the template. Simply place the template on the clay, touch the tip of a
or a needle tool to make a dot on both sides of each end of the shank for sizing, cut along both long sides between the dots then use a flesh blade or single edge razor to cut each end square.

Then lift the shank and wrap it around a paper covered ring mandrel of the corresponding size and make an overlap seam with paste for the strongest joint. From there design begins by adding creative components and other personal touches.
A bit of extra length is built into the template shape to allow for the overlap joint. Remember to create the ring shank large enough to accomodate for shrinkage for the type of metal clay you are using. USA ring sizing.
QuikArt™ Templates are simple to use. Each one measures 3.5" x 5". They are easily stored in an index card box!
