I just wanted to give you are review on the MetalMagic Silver Clay 100g (125g TW) I purchased. I found it to have more moisture in it. I could work with it much longer without it drying out. I liked that. On the flip side it seemed to take triple the time to dry. I also think it had a much higher shrinkage % then ANY other pmc I have worked with. Thanks you

Just used 25 grams of this clay . Went further than I expected , only used it in molds of seeds and shells so not tried rolling it out . The molds I made were big so wanted the big shrinkage . The sand dollars and urchins are lovely and the detail on them and the sycamore seeds lovely . Fired easily and impressively one piece that was slightly split came out of the kiln mended. It has a more rubbery texture than the other clays and mine was at first slightly sticky . Take care when sanding as it is a bit bendy - hence the split .I will be re ordering and try rolling . All in all a lovely clay to use , excellent value .

This clay is easy to use and is very forgiving. When you open the package the clay is hard, but after kneading it in your fingers for about 10 seconds it becomes very pliable. So far I have made 3 rings using molds from my 3D printer with nice results. The clay was dried in the open-faced molds at 250F for about an hour and a half. Firing was at 1600F for 90 min and the measured shrinkage is 31%. My wife has made a couple of pendants. She didn't account for the high shrinkage rate and ended up with thin warped pieces. We are both new to silver clay and this is much easier to use than any of the non-precious metal clays. We are both very happy with the potential this clay has along with the cost.
