Metal Magic Silver Clay

Written by Diane Rein

Here are some examples of the product in multiple forms. The first is a fired, finished piece with Patina Gel. The second is a fired piece that was brass brushed. The third piece is an unfired piece of dry Metal Magic Silver Clay.

MMS-025-2

Introducing a new silver clay product on the market called Metal Magic Silver Clay. This product is 75% fine silver and 25% binder by weight, which means that it shrinks 25% during firing in comparison to other brands of .999 silver clay that shrink 10 – 15%. It is available in 3 three sizes (25, 50 and 100 Gram packs) and comes in lump form only.

Metal Magic Silver Clay is a high quality  that was easy to work and manipulate.  Because it shrinks 25% we do not recommend this product for rings.  On a positive side, because of the shrink factor, this form is excellent for highlighting details and texture

We tested Metal Magic Silver Clay, check out our video to see the results!  Click the link below to order this product and watch the video.
