5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant for small one-off casts, 19 Dec. 2013
By 
Chris (Dorset, UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Art Clay Silver 650/1200 Low Fire Clay-20 Grams (Misc.)
Nice and soft clay to work with. Still dries out fairly quickly, I've found it quite a learning curve to use Silver clay, with my first pieces being ruined, or not coming out that well. It's quite expensive compared to the price of normal silver, but for producing small limited casts, it's still economically viable when compared to the cost of sending a master to be professionally cast.

My tips, that I've learnt the hard(expensive) way, would be:

Be prepared, have everything ready before you open your packet. This includes having some water or oil to keep your fingers and the clay moist whilst working with it.

Be patient. I've tried to speed the initial "in mould" drying time with heaters and ovens etc, but taken the piece out too soon. The end result is a dry top part of the cast, and the bottom part still being wet and ruining the impression. From now on I just let the pieces air dry in a warm room over several days, it takes time, but seems to be a more reliable method of drying my pieces.

Easy to use but found it a bit drier than the 10gm pack I ordered first which is a shame, still produced some nice pieces though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value product, 21 Oct. 2014

This review is from: Art Clay Silver 650/1200 Low Fire Clay-20 Grams (Misc.)
Arrived really quickly within 4 days! Was expecting within 4 weeks. Great value for money. Made my first piece with part of it this week. Quite soft need badgers balm on tools fingers and board to reduce sticking - but allows time to work on piece before drying

Great price, if you can wait for it... as it is sent from Japan.
