Metal Clays

There are 4 main types of metal clays:

For more information on the specifics of each type of metal clay, please see the "What is Metal Clay?" section in the Metal Clay Guru Learning Library.  There are different characteristics between brands and types including, but not limited to:

  • Workability
  • Drying Time
  • Shrinkage
  • Firing Times
  • Finishing Techniques
  • Durability

Each type of clay possesses its own unique pros and cons.  We suggest testing each type and brand of clay to see what works best for your personally.  Many artists are loyal to one brand, but that is becoming less and less true and more artists are choosing the clay that best suits their present project.
