Nitto Gakku PMC Precious Metal Silver Clay Polishing Tool 10 Strips 20x600mm Gray Alumina Tape Set, for Jewelry Making using Ring Pellets
When firing your PMC rings and bracelets, place this alumina tape on top of a ceramic tape to pre-polish the interior of your creation.
With the help of this 10-strip pack of alumina tape, you can ensure that your silver clay jewelry will be polished on the inside after firing. These 10-piece strips measures 600x20mm each and are enough for multiple PMC silver clay projects. When fired, this alumina tape pre-polishes the interior of your ring or bracelet, significantly reducing the amount of work needed to finish your piece.
Simply cut a strip the right size for the mold, then wrap it around until the mold is completely covered. Cut a strip of ordinary printer paper to the same dimensions and wrap around the Alumina tape and hold in place with the piece of scotch tape (this is a spacer that will allow your ring to shrink without binding to it before burning away) Place the silver clay around the mold and then fire at the proper temperature. The silver clay will shrink around the mold as it is fired, and the alumina tape will polish the interior of your work. To prevent the silver clay from adhering to the mold, wrap a ceramic tape (available separately) before the alumina tape. For best results do not reuse Alumina tape once fired.
