I sure hope I’m posting this right. In any case, here is my
I see lots of online and in books about PMC, Art Clay
Silver, and even BRONZclay – but very, very little on COPPRclay. I
realize it’s new, but aside from Hadar Jacobson (a most generous and
talented artist, but I can’t afford her workshops), there is little
posted by anyone using this clay.
Having tried PMC and now BRONZclay, I am about to jump into the
copper stuff, but wonder if it’s to be treated exactly like the
bronze, or are there differences? I want to know (without having to
buy books plus postage until I find another job) if when I work with
the two metals in one piece, do I use copper clay paste, or bronze
clay paste? Are the firing schedules identical between the two?
I know I’m asking a lot, to get without buying another
book or another class, but it’s difficult right now. I’m mostly
teaching myself to make jewelry to keep myself from going crazy (not
to mention that I love it).
