Sku : BRZ-031
Product Dimension: Grams
Carbon Firing/Kiln Temperature: 1500-1550°F
Hold Time: 3 hours minimum, according to thickness
Open-Air Firing Option: Original testing done by Martha Biggar
BRONZclay can be fired openly on a kiln shelf and quenched afterward. Firing time is significantly reduced, and quenching removes much of the firescale that may form.
Please note: This optional technique has been tested on pieces about four cards thick and 2" in diameter. To start, it is recommended that you fire on piece at a time to gauge how your kiln performs and adjust the time and temperature settings needed for the pieces you fire. Also note that multiple pieces require more time to quench; this can increase the formation of firescale during the process.
Kiln Temperature: 1540°F
Hold Time: 30 minutes
BRONZclay provides an incredible artistic range in metal clay. And, because it is bronze, it is also so economical that you can use it for large pieces—even sculptures—very affordably! Like its precious-metal counterparts, BRONZclay can be pinched, rolled, sculpted, cut or manipulated any way you like. Then fire it, and the binder burns away, leaving a solid, pure bronze object. Create jewelry, jewelry components, or custom-crafted specialized tools. You can even practice new techniques or design ideas using BRONZclay, then apply your new skills to precious metals.
Available in generous 30 gram, 100 gram, 200 gram and 1 kilogram blocks.
Made in the USA
