This weekend I have introduced a few new copper creations to my Etsy Shop with much more to come once I have finished playing with resin tonight.
All of these have been handcrafted with Art Clay Copper. After having read many blogs in search of a good firing schedule I chose one tested by the lovely Pam East. One of the benefits of Art Clay Copper is that you can fire your pieces on an open shelf, but after pouring my heart and soul into all of these little flowers I decided to use my firing pan.
I placed 4 shelf supports in my kiln and then placed my pan ontop of the supports. Each piece was placed inside my firing pan standing upright and fired at 1780 degrees with a holding time of 3 hours.
I was thrilled with my results and plan to try this schedule again.
