This full colour downloadable pdf guide contains 17 pages of expert guidance.  Whether you are totally new to metal clay or you have been doing it for some time, if you want to advance your skills and get better results, this guide is for you. This comprehensive guide gives you all the information you need. It is packed full of practical hints and tips, as well as all of my best kept secrets. The majority of this guide refers to silver metal clay but I have also included a section on firing brass and copper clay. This guide summarises many years of knowledge which I have gained over the years and it is the result of hours of experimentation, practice as well my own teaching experiences. I hope to give you the confidence to fire your own jewellery with a torch.


It is jam packed with useful information. It includes a photographic step-by-step guide to firing silver clay, a separate guide for firing bronze and copper clay.  It includes an explanation of the science behind the sintering process and what happens during firing. It has a really useful chart of drying and firing times for different weights and types of metal clay, where to buy tools and equipment as well as trouble shooting and my 10 top tips for success.
