Art Clay Silver Overlay Paste is an Art Clay exclusive product, especially formulated for use on glass, porcelain, and glazed ceramics.
Simply paint your design on in a thin layer with a brush, let dry, and fire. You now have a real pure silver decoration on your ceramic!
Create sgraffito designs, where you paint on a thin layer, leave it to dry, and then carve designs into the unfired silver so the porcelain shines through.
The Overlay Paste can also be used for repairs and bonding silver clay pieces together, it is a good alternative to the now discontinued Art Clay Oil Paste.
Art Clay Silver 650 Overlay Paste consists of pure silver particles, a special binding agent and water. The binding agent is produced from harmless pulp fiber. During firing, the pure silver particles solidify. The special formula of this product means it works will combined with glass, porcelain and ceramic materials.
Some silver settling may occur at the bottom of the jar. Stir the paste well with a needle tool before use. To dilute the paste take out a small amount and place it in a different container.
This product is water-based and can dry up. Always keep the container tightly capped. If it becomes too thick, just add a few drops of water and stir well.
Must be fully dried before firing.
*IMPORTANT - Please only fire with a torch if the material you have combined with the Overlay Paste allows you to do so.

Such a multipurpose product. I thinned it down to attach fine wire prior to enameling. Just add water - no expensive thinner. Worked really well. I then didn't like the enamel against the mirror finish silver - so used a thicher paste and added a distressed texture. I love the results and I have hardly used any. This is a definite stock item from now on.
Not the intended use and quite expensive, but great for beginners to Cloisonne enamelling. (4 stars for the price - although good here still quite expensive)
