Prometheus® Jeweller's Greenish Yellow Bronze Clay 200 g
|Prometheus® Greenish Yellow Bronze Clay is a claylike material which turns into pure, solid copper when fired in the kiln. It is a mixture of micron sized bronze powder, water, and organic binder. It can be formed by hand, rolled into a sheet or a rope. It can be molded, textured, even turned on a potter's wheel. Prometheus® Greenish Yellow Bronze Clay can be fired with most lab-created gemstones (cubic zirconias), pre-tested natural stones, glass beads, ceramic porcelain and Prometheus® Greenish Yellow Bronze Clay.|
When PGY® is fired in a kiln, the organic binder evaporates, burns away and you’re left with pure, solid bronze. Brush it, if needed pickle it, to remove any firescale, and finally polish.
You can create unique jewellery, ornaments, hollow ware, statutes and many other decorative objects with PGY®. Any thing you create with PGY® is a piece of art. Combine it with your imagination, and let your fingers do the rest!
|It is a 2-step-method. |
Step.1 Place the dried pieces on a stainless steel mesh and put it into a cold kiln, let it raise to 500°C/932°F and fire for 15 minutes. Take it out on to a fireproof surface and let it cool down.
Step.2 Put approximately 3 cm. of activated carbon to the bottom of a steel container. Place the pieces with at least 1.5 cm space between each other and fill the container with activated carbon, close it and put it into the preheated kiln to 800°C / 1470°F. Let the kiln raise to the target temperature again and fire it for 1 hour. When the firing is completed, either leave it to cool down in the kiln or, carefully take it out and leave it on a heat isolated surface until it is cold enough to take your pieces out.
