Nitto Gakku PMC Precious Metal Silver Clay 20x600mm Alumina & Ceramic Tape, for Polishing & Avoid Silver Clay Sticking to Ring Pellet Moulds
With this set of alumina and ceramic tape, you can make sure that your silver clay jewelry won't stick to your mold and that the inside will be polished after firing.
Ensure your silver clay jewelry won't stick to your reusable firing pellet mold and the insides will be polished after firing with this set of alumina and ceramic tape. Each strip of alumina and ceramic tape measures 600mm long and 20mm wide, enough for multiple silver clay projects. The alumina tape pre-polishes the insides of your ring or bracelet during firing while the ceramic tape keeps the silver clay from sticking to the mold.
To use, simply cut a piece of each strip appropriate to the mold's size. First, wrap the ceramic tape around the mold, followed by the alumina tape. Once secured, wrap the entire assembly in a single strip of plain paper (not included, ordinary copier paper will do) and secure with scotch tape (Note: This paper is important as it is a burn-away spacer, to ensure your ring will not shrink and grip the pellet). Once the three layers of tape are secured, place your silver clay ring around the mold and fire at the appropriate temperature. As the silver clay ring is fired, it will shrink around the mold and the tapes will prevent it from adhering or gripping the mold excessively while also polishing the insides, the ordinary paper strip will burn away. For optimal results, please do not reuse the alumina or ceramic tape after use
