  • Choose silver backed foil if you are leaving your solder silver

  •   VentureTape is the BEST
By on
Pros : Good weight, easy to work with; available in all 'backing' colors and widths.
Cons :
Other Thoughts : Never go with "bargain" tape! I made that mistake ONCE. I used 3x as much as I would have buying the Venture tape, because it tore/ split. NOT WORTH THE "DISCOUNT".

  •   Excellent for my needs.
By on
Pros : This product worked exceptionally well for my project - making microscope slide glass "charms" that are soldered around the edges.
Cons : None.
Other Thoughts : The 3/8" size is "just right" - not too narrow and not too wide.

It is true. Even the best of us get bored. We work and learn and experiment with one medium or one itty piece of said medium (which, like a new love, we are infatuated with - can think of nothing else)but, after a while -things can get stale. Its normal. The beauty is to realize that all these lovely and wonderful and awe inspiring mediums do not have to live in a vacuum. When you get bored with onedo a little of what I like to call Medium Mash-Up. My latest mashups have been with my own fused glass and silver. You can only fuse so many pendants and plates before youve had enough. For me, that means its time to move on to another process for a while. After working in silver (mostly rings) and loving itone day I found myself staring longingly at my lonely and unused kiln

Gems and other unique stones can be a beautiful addition to make a truly one of a kind silver clay project. They can become the focal point of a design, or simply add an interesting accent to an otherwise simple design. Some of our favorite ideas for creating with stones are Collect rocks while on a vacation to make keepsakes Let children collect stones to make special gifts Collect stones that are unique to your locale to make regionally inspired pieces Use gemstones to make personalized birthstone jewelry When working with stones it is important to know what the likely results will be. To help determine if a stone is suitable to be fired with PMC+, or PMC3 we will want to clearly define

Sometimes necessity is the mother of invention, and sometimes invention comes when you have nothing to lose. Early in my career, I had three metal-clay-and-fused-glass pendants fail in a single day. The glass cabochons simply shattered and fell away from the silver after the pieces were fired because I had neglected to cut an expansion hole underneath the cabochons. Augghh. Lesson learned. But now I was left with three ugly pieces of silver, each with small pieces of glass permanently fused into bizarre locations on the surfacea loss I could not afford. Weeks later, after tryingunsuccessfully to remove the glass, I decided to try fusing glass in patterns onto the surface of the pendants. The results were surprising, and the Stained Glass process was born This technique begins with any fired metal clay with a flat surface. Small shards of fusible glass are then attached to the silver.
