Devotion Fine Silver Clasp Tutorial  Details

This tutorial is good for you IF:

   - You own or have access to a KILN!


This tutorial cannot be considered as a beginners guide to working with Metal Clay unless you have a kiln. As this project is based on "high shrinkage" silver clay, torch firing is not available.


If you choose to use PMC+ (or PMC 3), then torch firing is possible but your clasp will be approximately 10% larger. If this fits your designs then .... this tutorial will work for you.   

The .pdf  file contains;

59 pages of techniques, tips and tricks.

57 HD quality photos
