Creative Bronze Clay

What is bronze?

Bronze was initially invented to create tools stronger than copper and less brittle than tin. As a result Bronze is actually approximately 90% copper and 10% tin. This is why the final look of Bronze is so similar to that of copper.

Torch firing Bronze Clay

For best results with Creative Bronze Clay fire using a kiln.

Bronze Clay can be torch fired using a professional butane gas torch providing the piece is not too large that when heating you cannot maintain a constant temperature over the whole piece.

Place the piece on kiln pillow then on to a torch block. Use a large flame to fire the piece.

Heat until the binder burns off. Once the piece starts to glow red begin timing for a minimum of 7 minutes.

After firing, quench your items immediately in pre-mixed Picklean solution and warm water, providing there are no gems set.

If you have gems in your items then leave the pieces to cool for an hour before using Picklean solution.

Kiln Firing Bronze Clay

Preheat the kiln to 800 C (1500 F). It is important to wrap or cover your pieces in kiln pillow tightly prior to firing. Fire for 30 minutes.

After firing, remove immediately from the kiln and quench in pre-mixed Picklean solution and warm water, providing there are no gems set. If you have gems in your items take them out of the kiln and leave them wrapped in kiln pillow for and hour to cool.
