NEW! 'The Ring Maker' from CMMC Tools, exclusive to Metal Clay Ltd in the UK!
A new innovative way to create seamless rings in 6 different shapes and 14 sizes - from UK ring size L 1/2 up to Z and the half sizes in between!
Do you sometimes mutter under your breath whilst struggling joining a ring? Have you ever fired a ring only to discover that the join was still visible - gaaah!Clément's Ring maker Tool might be perfect for you. Use it with base metal clay as well as precious silver metal clay.
Each shape set consists of 14 tools mounted in their own beautiful case with designated slots for each ring size, they're not only practical for keeping your tools safe and organised, but they also look great in contrasting black and gold. The entire set is plastic making them super light weight and easy to handle.
The inner core is interchangeable which means you can adjust the thickness of the band. Remove the core using the little tab to screw them in and out. Using a smaller core in a larger cutter will give you a thicker ring.
How does the Ring Maker work?
The Ring Maker set comes with 14 cutters in a range of sizes. Each cutter has three parts;
• CORE - The inner part, or Core, is what gives the ring its size (inner diameter or ring size). The core is removable - you can move a smaller core to a larger external cutter to get a thicker ring band!
• CUTTER - The external part, or Cutter, is the one that cuts the shape of the ring, and also what gives the thickness of your ring band. With the ring maker you can choose how thick as well as how wide you make your band.
• PUSHER - The moving part in the Cutter is called the Pusher, this will push the ring out of the Ring Maker after drying.
Oil your cutter and all its internal parts well. Roll or press out your metal clay to a level shape, roughly to the thickness you want your ring band to be wide. And cut your ring out. Leave to dry until roughly leather hard (not fully dry) and pop your ring out using the Pusher. Dry completely and refine and decorate as you wish.
Each set comes with clear instructions taking you through every single step.
Inside the case, under each Ring Maker, you have the conversion of the ring size in; US, UK, French, Japanese and millimeter sizing.
Available in shapes:
Each shape set includes 14 Ring Maker tools - from UK ring size L 1/2 up to Z (US ring sizes 6 - 13) and the half sizes. Note - the moulds are made to the correct size before shrinkage so you will need to take the shrinkage of the clay you work into account and go up however many sizes you need.
Temperature resistant to 47°C (116°F) so take care if using heated drying tools like dehydrators or hotplates a higher temperature may distort and damage the tool.
Full instructions will be provided with the set.
