Art Clay Silver

Art Clay Silver is a pure metal powder mixed with non-toxic binders and water. When kiln, torch or stove fired, the binders burn away, leaving pure, 99.9% silver. Art Clay Silver can be added to a variety of media: glass, ceramics, porcelain and polymer clay, to name a few.

Art Clay Silver can be rolled, sculpted, stamped, sanded, filed, engraved, drilled and pre-polished, all prior to firing. The versatility of this new-age silver clay is limited only by your imagination. Come and explore the world of Art Clay......
