Art Clay Copper Clay 50 Grams

Art Clay Copper is 100% copper.

You can work and fire it just like normal silver clay. Fire in a kiln for 30 minutes at 1778° F (970 °C) and you don’t need to use any activated carbon or firing pans to sinter your piece. This formula can also be fired with a torch.
This formula was developed to be compatible with Art Clay silver clay to create pieces with the Mokume technique resulting in genuine pieces of art.

  • INFO
  • A very consistent formula with consistent results after firing.

    Kiln firing:
    Put the dried clay on shelf paper on a kiln shelf, as the copper can stick to the shelf slightly. Place in a hot kiln and fire at 1778* (970C) for 30 minutes.

    Torch firing:
    Place piece no larger than a 50cent coin and or 35 grams in weight on a firing brick and heat until cherry red for at least 5-10 minutes, depending on size and firing power of the torch.

    After firing:
    After firing, take the fired piece out of the kiln with tweezers or tongs, and quench immediately in cool water.

    This will remove most of the oxidized layer which occurs during firing. If the piece has a lot of fire scale it will require pickling.
