This paste type silver clay is great for repairing broken silver clay, filling holes or making creative patterns on unfired Art Clay Silver.
Art Clay Silver is low-fire silver clay that can be fired at 660 degrees Celsius or 1200 degrees Fahrenheit. Used to coat or paint organic materials such as twigs, leaves or paper forms. The organic material burns away leaving fine detail captured in silver. It is also used to bond unfired Art Clay Silver pieces, or mend cracks in unfired Art Clay Silver. After firing at the applicable temperature it will turn to pure 99.9% silver
This type of silver clay can be modelled in the same way as regular water-based clay. Once opened, it is susceptible to the air and must be kept moist in order to retain its pliability and workability. Use a container of water and a paintbrush to moisten any areas of the clay surface that begin to crack while working.
Firing is how Art Clay turns into pure silver. No matter which method you use to fire Art Clay, the process is the same: burning the organic binders off and sintering the silver particles to increase strength. In the end, you have a piece of 99.9% fine silver, just 8% to 9% smaller and with all the fine detail and shape of the pre-fired piece.
