Native American Friendship Symbol
I recently got started on some new symbols for my Etsy Shop. One of my best selling symbols is the Native American Healer's Hand symbol.
The Healer's Hand is also known as the Shaman's Hand. It is an ancient symbol of healing and protection. The symbol is known for its therapeutic energy and is displayed for its curative powers. Displaying the symbol in your home also brings good health, good luck and happiness.
The Healer's Hand consists of a hand with a spiral palm. The spiral is an ancient symbol of eternity, it represents the universal Spirit in all things.
I keep throwing the clay until it spreads out to about a 5 inch circle. Then I take the symbol stamp and that you can see in the next two photos and try to place it in the center of the clay. I make a 3d image file of the symbol I want and have the symbols printed from a 3d printer, they are made with a stiff, durable plastic and can hold very fine detail as we will see with the lettering.
At this point I take my 4 inch circular cookie cutter and position it over the impressed image on the clay making sure, as best I can, that the image is centered. Then I press down creating a perfect circle with the symbol centered.
I can fit 8 symbols comfortably on each drywall sheet.
