Very smooth and easy to use fine silver clay.

Use your creative skills and realize your metal clay projects with this new formula clay, made in Poland. If you’re not sure about this clay, please read our article in Metal Clay Experience where we compare it to Art Clay Silver 999.

The clay can be easily rolled out, formed and shaped like any other clay. It accepts very fine and delicate structures from texture plates without any problem and thanks to its good working time, you can even create 3d shapes without any problems. Sanding and filing is easy.

Firing

Firing with the handheld torch

The instructions do not contain any information about firing the clay with a handheld torch. We tried it and it worked without any problem. Like all other clays, we recommend a piece of maximum the size of a 2-euro-piece.


Firing in the kiln

The instructions make a difference between minimal, recommended and optimal firing in an electric kiln.

Minimal
750° C for 5 minutes, shrinkage 11-12%

Recommended
820-830° C for 30 minutes, shrinkage 15%

Optimal (our recommendation)
900° C for 2 hours, shrinkage 16%

The final piece is made of fine silver (999/1000 silver).
