How To Use Metal Clay Moulds
It's so easy! Simply press metal clay into the mould and allow to dry before carefully popping it out and firing with a gas torch or kiln.
Keep in mind for your designs that the metal clay will shrink by around 10% during firing.
How To Create A Hole
If you want to create a pendant or a pair of earrings, you may wish to put a hole in your metal clay piece before firing it. You can do this by simply using a cocktail straw and neatening the edge using sandpaper when it's dried.
