Developed by artist, instructor and metal clay enthusiast, Cindy Silas, Cyprus Copper Clay is an excellent base metal clay medium for jewelry, crafts, sculpture and models. Offered in lump (wet) form, this clay is water-based, air dries and fires to .999 pure copper. Economical, easy to form, fire and finish, the fired clay presents as beautiful on its own or as the perfect platform for enameling projects. In the first video below, Karen gives step by step instruction to add color by enameling on this wonderful copper clay. She gives it an antiqued finish using Patina Gel. We have created multiple cuff templates to offer a variety of different designs options. These versatile templates can be used two different ways, cut out the design and layer over another sheet of rolled out clay or emboss. We have included Karen's original video below to show these methods.
The tools and supplies used in this video are listed below.
