Art Clay, sometimes called silver clay, gold clay, metal clay, or precious-metal clay, is made by Aida Chemical Industries in Japan: it's a composite material, made of fine silver or gold powder and a harmless organic binder.
As it's fired, the binder vapourises and the metal powder sinters, leaving solid 999 silver or 22 carat gold: real metal, not something that just looks like metal. During firing, small amounts of non-toxic carbon dioxide and water vapour are released: so it's safe to use at home.
The Art Clay range includes: 650 silver clay, original silver, slow dry, slow tarnish, paste, oil paste, overlay paste, syringe clay, paper clay, gold clay, gold paste, gold foil, and cork clay.
Silver clay can be combined with a wide range of materials, before firing: beads, copper, dichroic glass, pearls, porcelain, polymer clay, semiprecious gems, and fine silver findings.
Its easy-to-use flexibility makes it a versatile material, ideal for art colleges, home and business jewellers, ceramic cafes, craftworkers, glass studios, metalsmiths, modelmakers, and potteries.
Art Clay is sold internationally through distributors. Although exchange rates, import duties, national taxes, shipping charges, and retail prices vary, distributors buy at the same price, are expected to be well-informed, and should have a good range of Art Clay products ready to despatch.
Art Clay distributors in one country can't sell to organisations or individuals in other countries. If your country is poorly represented or your distributor is commercially invisible, call or email.
