Just as PMC® does, COPPRclay™ metal clay provides an incredible artistic range. And, because it is copper, it is also so economical that you can use it for large pieces--even sculptures--very affordably! Like its precious-metal counterparts, COPPRclay can be pinched, rolled, sculpted, cut or manipulated any way you like. Then fire it, and the binder burns away, leaving a solid, pure copper object. Create jewelry, jewelry components, or custom-crafted specialized tools. You can even practice new techniques or design ideas using COPPRclay, then apply your new skills to precious metals. And because COPPRclay is pure copper, it’s great for artists who enjoy applying enamels (make sure to follow the recommended firing schedule included with your COPPRclay and listed on copprclay.com). Package includes 100g of COPPRclay™ metal clay.

please note: • COPPRclay™ performs best when fired in a firing pan, surrounded by coconut shell–based carbon, inside a kiln. Firing pan and coconut shell–based activated carbon available separately. See the instruction sheet with your COPPRclay for details on all firing methods.
• If you plan to enamel the piece, please follow the recommended firing schedule listed in the instructions.
