NEW DESIGNS FRESH OUT OF THE MICROWAVE KILN

Just had to share with your my latest designs using copper clay.  I am having so much fun sintering this new clay in my MicroKiln.  I seem to create a lot more designs then I use to with PMC and Art Clay Silver because it cost much less.   We are talking about $17.99 for 50 grams of copper clay versus $75 to $82 for 50 grams of PMC or ACS.

If you have wanted to work with fine silver clay but were afraid you would mess up in creating a design and monies would be lost ----- worry no more.  Let me make a few suggestions:

  • First - start out practicing with polymer clay (this will help you to get use to hand forming designs).
  • Second - use copper clay to practice and create designs becoming familiar with the feel and attributes of copper clay.
  • Third - when you are satisfied with what you can do with copper clay, learn the differences between the metal clays and start creating fantastic fine silver designs.

Below are my latest creations using copper clay and the MicroKiln:
