Art Clay Silver (metal clay) can be worked just like other craft clays. It can be sculpted, pressed into moulds or textured with stamps, natural leaves or plates.
Art Clay Silver comes in many forms. It is a water based clay that consists of a combination of different sized micron-sized particles and non toxic organic binders.
When fired to the recommended temperature, the organic binder burns away leaving pure silver (except for the "Original" series, all clays shrink between 8%- 9% when fired). The finished silver item can be hallmarked as 999 silver by assay offices throughout the UK.
Firing can take as little as 5 minutes and it is even possible to "fire" the clay using a gas hob on a domestic cooker!
The metal clay can be rolled, shaped, moulded, textured and will delight anyone who is interested in designing and manufacturing their own jewellery.
