Delicate Element Texture - Aster Mandala
These silicone textures are specially designed to create beautiful, delicate designs using very small amounts of clay. Create intricate and lightweight elements individually or combine them to make more elaborate jewelry. Depending upon size, most designs will require only 2 or 3 grams of clay, allowing you to create more jewelry than you ever imagined with a single package of silver clay. Individual elements make for the lightest earrings, or, combine elements to create matching necklaces. Apply delicate elements to a metal clay backing to create brooches or to apply enamels. Making beautiful, delicate designs in metal clay couldn't be easier, fun or more economical.
IMPORTANT NOTE: EZ960 and FS999 is recommended. No other clay body will perform as well in the silicone texture. See Tech Specs for more information.
It is necessary to dry the clay while still embedded into the texture. Dry completely on a cup warmer or in a dehydrator set at 165°F for 5 to 7 minutes.
