With this open-air technique, you can fire your original and FASTfire BRONZclay™ and your original COPPRclay™ pieces faster and easier without having to follow multiple steps or embed them in activated carbon. The technique, developed by Martha Biggar, was first presented on the Creative Fire website (www.cre8tivefire.com) and is presented here for your use. This technique involves firing the pieces, then quenching them; quenching removes much of the firescale that may form in the open-air firing.
