EZ960™ Sterling Overview & Firing Guide EZ960® Sterling Overview & Firing Guide

EZ960 Sterling Overview & Firing Guide

EZ960 is a great, all purpose metal clay with excellent working properties. Because the clay is a sterling silver alloy, one of its best attributes is its post firing strength, in comparison to fine silver. This inherent strength makes EZ960 the perfect choice for jewelry that takes lots of abuse, such as rings and bracelets. It is also great for jewelry with findings and components such as bails, hinges and clasps, as well as delicate pieces that would benefit from the strength of sterling silver.

Note: For firing in all types of carbon ie coal, coconut and magic, fire in a vented container at 1590F for 3-4 hours.
