Metal Magic Sterling Silver Clay
This product has a shrinkage rate of approximately 25%, which allows for more detail in the final piece. Any object like cubic zirconia, lab created gemstones or findings can be fired in place as long as they can withstand the kiln firing temperature of 1500°F degrees for 30 to 60 minutes. This form is excellent for highlighting details and texture. The shrink factor can be used as a design device to scale down larger forms or enhance details.
