WHAT IS BRONZE METAL CLAY? Bronze Metal clay is a medium consisting of very small particles of the metal bronze, mixed with an organic binder and water for use in making jewelry, beads, and small sculptures. Originating in Japan in 1990, bronze metal clay can be shaped just like any soft clay, by hand or using molds.
After drying, the clay can be fired in a variety of ways such as in a kiln. The binder burns away, leaving the pure sintered bronze.
GOOD TO KNOW:
Bronze jewelry will develop a rich gold patina over time. If this is not to your taste, you may restore shine with Worcestershire sauce! Dip the piece into the sauce for a minute, then thoroughly rinse in water. The acidity of the sauce will help remove tarnish. You can also maintain the finish of your bronze jewelry by washing it frequently with soap and water, which removes the body oils that facilitate oxidation.
I send you your jewelry with a coating of Renaissance wax already applied. This layer is easily washed off, and you can minimize the oxidation by taking your jewelry off at night, and washing it regularly with soap and water. You can also periodically coat it with any metal wax, or a wax called RENAISSANCE WAX, which prevents the jewelry from tarnishing and inhibits the oxidation reaction with your skin oils. Wax will wear off, but is easy to re-apply at home.
