Clay Type compared to Paste Type Art Clay Silver
The clay type silver metal clay can be used the same way as regular clay, modelling and sculpting your piece into an artistic shape.
Moisture is essential to keep the clay flexible and workable.
When the clay cracks while you work, use a brush or a wet cloth to moisten it.
By default, Paste carries more water than the clay type and has the consistency of melted ice cream. Only transfer the amount you need from the jar to a small tray, and use more water to make the thickness you desire.
You can use the silver paste in various ways:
- Join two pieces of dry or wet clay together.
- Filling gaps for pits and cracks in drying pieces.
- Attach silver findings (screw eyes, tailbacks, brooch findings, etc.) to dried or wet clay pieces. The normal contraction of the clay bonds the findings during the firing process.
- When applied in separate layers onto organic forms such as leaves, dried flowers, paper-origami, etc., Paste type creates a perfect impression of the form.
