Copper Clay is WONDERFUL!!


WOW! I love the look of Copper Clay. It forms much like PMC Fine Silver -- the only difference for me so far is that it had to be fired in a stainless steel box in activated carbon for 3 hours at 1700 degrees ferenheit. I am tumbling more of the pieces. OH yes and the best benefit is the price only $20.00 for 100 grams!! Being silver is going up in price this is a good deal!!

Copper Clay Out of the Kiln


Copper Clay out of the kiln looks like terra cotta. When I brushed it with soap, water and a brass prush it polished up beautifully. I love it!! C'est Manifique! On the angel pendamt above, I left the grooves unburnished so the design pops!

Trying Out Copper Clay


My first pack of Copper Clay just arrived today and I had a chance to make all the pieces showm from the packet and it was only $20. With silver prices increasing I think I am going to have to make more mixed metal pieces. also have some Bronze Clay. I bought it when it first came out but it seems more mysterious to me. Will have to try Bronze soon.

Will see how the firing goes withe the copper -- will post finished pieces when I get a chance.

Leather and Silver Bracelet


Love how this turned out. A client saw an unfinished Fine Siver Bracelet I was working on and asked if I could add it to leather. I think I will have to make one for myself.
