Bronze and Copper clay

Pin It

Had the chance to go to a workshop to try out the new bronze and copper clays. The clays are very similar to the silver clay I have worked with in the past but much cheaper! The only downside to it is that they both need to be kiln fired (guess I need to start saving!!)

I enjoyed working with both of the clays, as I said very similar to the silver but they don't dry out quite as quickly so you can play for a bit longer. On the other hand they will both oxide so they do need to be fired relatively quickly unlike silver which can be left for months before firing.

Anyway the picture shows the unfired pieces bronze on the left, copper on the right both are the results of a 30gram packet of clay.
