Paragon SC2 Kiln
Product Code: C182
*Includes the following special features: Thick cordierite shelf (best for metal clay work), a sheathed thermocouple (the sheath protects against corrosion) and a special latch handle (stronger than the standard one). It also comes with a years' warranty although these are such good quality kilns we doubt you will need it!*
The Paragon SC2 kiln is one of the most popular and highly recommended kilns for using with metal clays but is also a brilliantly versatile all-round kiln. It is suitable for firing PMC, Art Clay, BronzClay, Copper Clay, Glassclay and dichroic glasses and is also great for enamelling, lost-wax casting, low-fire ceramics, glass fusing, glass-bead annealing and much more, giving you the potential to hugely expand your jewellery making repertoire!
Your kiln has an easy to use, digital timer so you can set it and then leave it to fire without the need to keep attending to it. It is cheap to run (only around 50p per firing!) and at 34 x 33 x 40cm it fits into the smallest of work spaces. It comes with a special thick shelf and four posts to stand it on, a vent bung and full instructions. There are four door options available depending on your needs (please click here for more information) and there are also extra shelf kits available so they can be stacked to give more capacity for firing more pieces all at once. The kiln comes in blue, pink, purple, black and turquoise; blue is the standard colour and is usually kept in stock, whereas pink, purple, black and turquoise are made to order and will take approximately 10 days for delivery and cost £49 extra (but who can resist a pink kiln!).

Customer reviews of this product:
“I'm an enamellist and a metal clay artist. When I started looking for my first kiln, I wanted one kiln that would serve both these needs. I found exactly what I was looking for in the Paragon SC-2. Over the years this versatile little kiln has been an absolute workhorse and has never let me down. It's fast and precise. I can fire an entire load of metal clay, from start to finish, in about half an hour! The addition of a window in the door has made it perfect for enameling. Being able to watch the enamels fuse eliminates problems with over-firing."
Pam at Pinzart in Alpharetta, Georgia
“I love Paragon, have been using their kilns since the late 60s. I used them first for pottery and casting, then glass, and now PMC. It'll do anything, probably stand on its head for me. I have used it for wax burnout, beadmaking, metal clay, enameling, heat colouring copper—just about everything. It's a workhorse!"
Ann at Ann Davies Jewellery
“I am so pleased with my new kiln and loving working with it after an initial flap about how to programme it! I was very impressed with the price as it was the cheapest I'd found it and had free postage. I was also very pleased at how quick the delivery was and have made a few things already. My first piece sold on day one!"
Freya, Isle of Arran
“I was very pleased with the extra fast delivery on the kiln and the careful way it had been packed; it's also a very convenient size for stowing away in a cupboard when not in use! I have only used the kiln for PMC so far, but it was very easy to use. I don't have a separate workshop, so have to work in the kitchen - I set it up on large ceramic floor tiles on a table in the middle of the room so that it is away from anything flammable."
