Wire Riveting on a Curve

Wire rivets are a great way to attach two pieces of metal.  Wire rivets can be used in small tight spaces and also can be made to disappear into the surface if needed.  Working with a small curved surface can be difficult and a wire rivet works perfectly with a few tricks! 

 

An addition to the metal clay community was added.

IMPACT Artist Project

At the IMPACT Artist Project we're building a stronger Metal Clay arts community by harnessing the generous attitude of giving and sharing, which is so wide spread in the community, and giving it back to our members. By developing a program where YOU are the focus, our IMPACT members always have someone to trouble shoot their problems with; our guilds have more active and involved members; our teachers are working; our teaching facilities have a waiting list; our conferences are filled; our businesses are growing and thriving; and together we are benefiting. 

IMPACT is constantly expanding our hub of information for facilitating matches between new and interested students with knowledgable veterans of Metal Clay. As our community and resources grow, we are becoming more knowledgeable, better at our craft, and more creative artists, enabling us to foster newcomers in the field and grooming them to become our next generation of leaders.

One Fire Flex Clay Flexibility - Hadar Jacobson

This clip demonstrates the flexibility of Hadar's Clay™ One-fire Flex Clay. Hadar's Clay™ One-fire Flex Clays are specialty clays suitable for using with embossing and cutting machines such as the Silhouette Cameo. Unlike the Traditional/Flex clays, One-fire Flex Clays can be fired in one phase only.

Since the One-fire Flex Clays are compatible with the One-fire clay, you can decrease their flexibility if necessary by adding One-fire clay to them.

One-fire Flex Clays can also be used instead of the Traditional/Flex clays for folding, knotting, braiding and weaving. Full instructions and projects can be found in the book The Handbook of Metal Clay: Textures and Forms, 2nd edition.
