Rio Grande and Metal Adventures Introduce WHITE COPPRclay
Rio Grande and Metal Adventures present another great advance in
metal clay: WHITE COPPRclay. WHITE COPPRclay widens the design
opportunities for base metal clay artists by adding a third color to
the available palette. In addition to the bright yellow of BRONZclay
and the rosy pink of original COPPRclay, the silvery gray of WHITE
COPPRclay provides new design options for the jewelry-maker.
Like other clay varieties, it can be textured, or accented with
color using oxidizers or patinas, or simply polished to a bright
white shine. After firing, the solid metal piece that emerges from
the kiln is an alloy of nickel and copper. WHITE COPPRclay adds
contrast to metal clay jewelry designs and hollowware creations:

Before firing, layer accent pieces can be layered with original
Stack layers of clay, extrude and slice thinly to create mokume
gane-like woodgrain patterns.
WHITE COPPRclay is available in 30g, 100g and 200g packages, suited
to the individual studio, the classroom or more production-minded
