FYI Silver

FYI - For Your Inspiration - is a newish metal clay (intro'd in Aug 2014) that our instructors are raving about! For one thing - the price point - oooo la la - Sweeeet.

Like other metal clays, it is made from microscopic particles of pure silver, along with an organic, non-toxic binder and the working properties are similar to PMC and ACS, and the end result is the same -  0.999 pure (fine) silver. FYI Silver is nice and malleable straight out of the package.  It takes an impression beautifully, sculpts and moulds very well and has a long open working-time.  Shrinkage is 20%. Use this to your advantage to make pieces that have a very detailed and intricate look. It does need to be kiln-fired.
