New formula Art Clay Silver packaged in a syringe to enable delicate extruded filigree designs and raised decoration on Art Clay silver clay. It can also be used to fill cracks or small gaps. The consistency of Syringe Type is slightly harder than the Paste Type, allowing more control and workability. It is comprised of 88% recycled silver and 12% binder and water with a silver purity of over 99.96% after firing. When the binders burn away, the silver clay item will shrink by approximately 8-9% (in length).

Art Clay Silver Syringe Type has a firing temperature of 650°C up to 800°C and can be fired using a gas hob, blow torch or kiln; kiln only if using a core such as cork clay. See more information about Art Clay Silver Syringe Type (PDF)

Art Clay Silver is a precious metal silver clay which can be moulded or shaped into fine items of jewellery or small objects such as doll’s house photo frames. The malleable clay consists of fine particles of recycled pure silver mixed with a non-toxic organic binder. Once dry, the silver clay items are fired to burn away the binder to leave pure silver, which can then be hallmarked as 999 (99.9% pure).
