FAQ/Answer

The silver clay shown in magazines sometimes is shiny, sometimes has a matte look, and sometimes it is colored. Do all of these come from the same clay, and how do they get the colors?

The silver finish is determined by how you work with the clay both before and after firing. A high shine is achieved with sandpaper, rotary drill using 3M radial bristle discs, magnetic burnishers, or just good old-fashioned elbow grease.

Most people think that Liver of Sulphur gives silver an old, black effect. Wrong. When used correctly, you can get the color and effect you want: gold, amber, magenta, blue, and then black. Most colored pieces are made with Liver of Sulphur or enameling.
