Prometheus® Jeweller's Light Yellow Bronze Clay 20 g
When the clay is fired in a kiln, the organic binder evaporates and 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, sculptures and many other decorative objects. Any thing you create with Prometheus® Jeweller's Light Yellow Bronze Clay is a piece of art. Combine it with your imagination and let your fingers do the rest!
Firing PLY 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 780°C / 1436°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.
