Do It Yourself!!!

So by now we should all know that Bill Struve has devoloped BronzClay and Rio Grande is distributing it to the world.  Love it.  And perhaps some us have heard rumors that copper clay is coming soon.

"Copper Circle" by Hadar Jacobson

Well Hadar Jacobson of the Art In Silver studio has also developed her own formula for bronze and copper clays. And now she's making copper clay POWDER available.  This video shows how easy it is to mix your own base metal clay.  Now you can just mix up what you need, when you need it.  No storing in the fridge, no worries about oxidation contamination.  Much too cool.

For more info, scroll below the video to some very handy links.  Note that the firing times and temps recommended are for the copper powder clay only!  Not Rio's version.

I'm loving the copper clay- it is amazingly resilient and isn't as sticky as Bronzclay, just to give a comparison. My pieces haven't been fired yet, but I'm excited about the possibilities. Just got Hadar's two books and they're amazing!!
