What is Metal Clay?
Metal Clay was created in the early 1990’s in Japan for the purpose of using reclaimed silver. It consists of microscopic particles of silver suspended in an organic binder, making it similar to modeling clay. It can be molded, textured, and shaped using simple and inexpensive tools to create jewelry that would be unattainable with traditional metal-smithing techniques. When heated by torch or kiln, the organic binder burns away and the metal particles sinter (fuse), forming solid metal that can now be treated as you would traditional silver.
