NOW BACK AS BONUS PACKS - FREE 10% clay in every pack! And there's been a redevelopment of the formula, keeping the clay creamier for longer! 

An open-shelf (i.e. no carbon needed) STERLING SILVER CLAY! Art Clay Silver 950, an enriched sterling silver clay, is a creamy and smooth clay to work with, with a consistency very close to the the normal Art Clay Silver New Formula. It comes ready mixed, so you can just open a packet, and start working - no need to measure powders or mix two separate clays. And it needs no carbon for firing.

50g + 5g clay in each pack (also available in 25g + 2.5g packs).

** PLEASE NOTE** - This clay is kiln fire only

BENEFITS:

  • About 60% stronger than Art Clay fine silver (due to 5% copper content)
  • Hallmark as sterling silver
  • Pre-mixed into a smooth, creamy, pliable clay
  • Simple straight forward kiln firing - no carbon needed

SIMPLE FIRING
This enriched sterling clay does NOT require any carbon to fire! It is fired once (incorporating two stages) on an open shelf in a kiln. No carbon = mess-free! If you have programmable kiln, it is very easy to set the firing schedule - if you need help on how to do this, feel free to contact us.

  1. Put on a kiln shelf, in a cool kiln
  2. Heat up to 500C and hold for 30 minutes (this first step burns off the binder)
  3. Heat up to 870C and hold for 60 minutes (this final firing sinters the metal particles)

The kiln can heat up at full speed, and doesn't need to cool off between the two stages. Avoid moving the piece after the first firing step as it will be fragile before sintering.

PROFESSIONAL STRENGTH
The ACS950 is approximately 60% stronger than the regular Art Clay silver clay (due to the 5% copper content). The extra strength makes it the ideal choice for designs taking a lot of wear and tear, fingerprint jewellery, as well as rings, cuffs, and delicate thin open-ended designs.

WHAT DOES 950 STAND FOR? 
950 is the purity of the silver after firing; 95% silver and 5% copper. The ACS950 will be hallmarked as Sterling silver in the UK.

Great to work with

Written by Gemma Illman on 25th Oct 2018

I love how easy art clay 950 is to work with. It's not quite as easy to get the super shiny mirror finish that you can get with the 999 but that's the price you pay for the additional strength and durability of this product. I would definitely recommend it for projects that will take a bit more wear and tear,

Love it!

Excellent clay for ring making and jewellery that requires added strength. No problems when firing.

Just Fab and Soooo easy to use

After using PMC Sterling for the past 2 years, I was delighted when I got a phone call to tell me that Artclay had now developed a Sterling Silver Clay that could be Shelf fired in the Kiln. I absolutely LOVE it .... so easy to use ... picks up fine detail beautifully and gives a far longer working time .... I also find the shrinkage less than the PMC Sterling ... all in all I haven't looked back since my first packet .

love this new sterling silver clay, works just like regular art clay but has the added bonus of being stronger and more durable once fired... love it!

Very Like Art Clay's Pure Silver

Written by Theodora on 26th Sep 2016

Very similar to Art Clay Silver 999 when working with it. Would have given it 5 stars but it's a bit more of a hassle to fire than the 999 version, not hard to do, just means I have to check my kiln and change the settings after 1/2 hour. I'm happy to do this though knowing that the end result is stronger.

Great new product

Just used this Sterling Silver Clay for the first time to make some fingerprint key fobs. Once it had warmed up it was great to use. The finished product looks fab. Feel more confident that fingerprints will last longer.
