Going far beyond most other metal clay books currently available, Metal Clay for Jewelry Makerscovers basics and much more. Inside, you'll explore a range of techniques, including how to form hinges and hollow forms; work with paper clay; add gemstones, other metals, glass, ceramic, resin, and enamel; and forging, annealing, planishing, and adding patinas. All currently available metal clays are covered; including gold, silver, copper, and bronze, in soft clay, paper, and paste forms. Sue also covers the materials that are often used in conjunction with metal clay, including embellishments, stones, and findings. After covering materials, Sue dives right into techniques, from the basics to specific advanced techniques. She explores the use of additional materials as well--using resin, mounting stones, pearls, fused glass, or metals; enameling; combining PMC with polymer clay; and creating patinas. A section on zero waste--how to conserve and reuse expensive metal clay remnants--completes the how-to section. Packed with more than 500 photographs, this book will give you a clear guide to both the process and end product or effect. While no projects are in the book, a 10-page gallery of finished projects provides inspiration for you to explore metal clay and to use your newfound jewelry-making skills with this innovative material, often dubbed "magical clay."
