Here it is! Soft and supple-feeling clay with fine silver powder suspended within. Enjoy the fun and versatility of playing with clay with a twist ... firing the finished piece transforms it into a valuable, pure silver treasure.
Make a ball with clean hands and flatten it out. Shape it like regular clay using your hands and imagination.
Use a hot air dryer for 5-10 minutes, or leave your clay creation to dry for a day. The clay becomes as rigid as dried plaster.
Prepare the piece for firing by filing cracks and smoothing it with a file or sandpaper. More clay can be added for repairs or details before it is fired.
After firing the piece on your gas stove top, with a mini torch or an electric kiln, the clay will burn off leaving 99.9 percent pure silver.
Depending on desired outcome, polish with a wire brush, various sandpapers, a burnisher or buffing equipment.
The finished product is a one-of-a-kind, pure silver treasure. Incorporate into jewelry or craft designs.
