There is a new metal clay on the market named COPPRclay.
This metal clay is available exclusively through riogrande.com and copprclay dealers.
I started to play with it in April and I really love the texture of the clay.
I am a very enthusiastic promoter of metal clays and this new clay is going to open up more opportunities for creating bigger pieces.
After my wonderful experience in making a pot with bronzclay I wanted to create a pot with copprclay too.
My work is always full of details and tridimensional and I wanted to do pieces like that on my first try with COPPRclay.
This was my "Pineapple Pot".
Two more of my pieces, a "Tree of Life" and " Milagro Heart".
I fired the pieces at 1650 F and hold for 2 hours using coal-based carbon.
Sadly for me, my pieces did not sinter!!!
Talking with more artist about my experience and with Bill Struve (the inventor of COPPRclay), I found that I need it to fired my pieces at 1700F and hold for 3 hours and to only use coconut shell-based carbon.
This is not over !!!!! I will try again soon!!!!!!
