Crushed Mineral Accents are prepared from large pieces of minerals, including coloured Cubic Zirconia. They are an easy way to add a bit of colour and sparkle to your Art Clay. They are excellent for giving a drusy look to your pieces. They’re more affordable than colour-coated drusys, they allow you more artistic freedom, and you don’t have to struggle with more advanced methods of setting a shaped stone after firing.
Most of the CMA Accents can be fired at 650°C without any colour changes. Some of the colours change at 800°C when fired at 30 minutes. Check out our full instructions here.
Please note: The product image shows an example pack. The quantity and sizes of the minerals can change from pack to pack. (You can also break the minerals up more if you wanted smaller pieces).
Lovely, natural shapes. I bought these to create a freer look in my pieces and really love the irregular shapes and sizes. I bought this with the SiChrome Gold accents and these come in much bigger 'chunks'. This means there are less of them. They are sharp, which seems obvious but is definitely something to consider when making jewellery.
