This tool is included in the Rings & Things Metal Clay Kit which contains 20 types of basic tools, field tested and hand-selected by our staff and resident ACS Master Instructor.
Art Clay Silver is powdered fine silver mixed with non-toxic binders and water. When kiln or torch fired, the binders burn away, leaving pure, 99.9% silver. Art Clay Silver can be added to a variety of media: glass, ceramics, porcelain, polymer clay, and more. It can be rolled, sculpted, stamped, sanded, burnished, filed, engraved, drilled and pre-polished, all prior to firing. (There is a small amount of shrinkage, normally 8-10% when the binders burn out.)
Shaping, Smoothing and Texturing Tools
Clean your tools promptly after each use, so you can save the scrap silver and re-use it. It might not seem like much each time, but it can add up to a lot of saved money!
Small screw-tight cosmetic containers work very well for saving left-over bits of unfired Art Clay Silver. Add a few drops of water as necessary.
