Art Clay Silver 950 clay is the choice for professional jewellery makers. Its high strength, surface hardness and purity allows you to create beautiful designs that normal Art Clay Silver cannot accommodate for. 60% stronger than regular Art Clay Silver, with a purity after firing of Silver 950. This means your jewellery is eligible to be sent to an assay office, and can be stamped as ‘sterling silver’.
The high strength of Art Clay Silver 950 allows you to create thinner, more delicate jewellery such as open ended rings and bracelets. The moulding and drying process is the same as regular Art Clay Silver, however please allow for a little extra shrinkage after firing. Shrinkage is approximately 11-13%.
Art Clay Silver 950 must be fired in an electric kiln with temperature control. Do not use a gas oven or blow torch.
