Metal Clay

Make your own jewellery at home easily using metal clay!

Metal clay is a wonderful almost magical material. It's made from extremely fine particles of metal, mixed with organic binders and water. You shape it like modelling clay, leave it to dry, and then fire to burn off the binder - you're left with solid silver (or gold, sterling silver, bronze, or copper, depending on what clay you use). It feels like alchemy magic!

Art Clay and PMC are two different brands of silver and gold clay. There are minor differences between the two products, and some people have their own preferences - a bit like the two well-known brands of cola drinks! After firing, they both give you exactly the same result. Here at Metal Clay Ltd you can find Art Clay Fine and Sterling Silver and Gold, as well as Goldie Bronze, Copper, and Iron base metal clays, Metal Adventures Bronze and Copper base metal clays, and Prometheus Base metal clays.

Art Clay Silver Clay (ACS), Art Clay Sterling Clay, Art Clay Copper, and Gold Clay, made by Aida Corporation, Precious Metal Clay (PMC), made by Mitsubishi Materials are the two original brands from Japan. These are often referred to as metalclay. silverclay. or precious clay. BronzClay and CopprClay are made by Bill Struve's Metal Adventures in the USA.
