KILNS AND FIRING MATERIALS
Although it is possible to fire Silver Metal Clay without a Kiln - there are well known limitations of size and not being able to utilize the amazing breadth of possibilities with Silver Metal Clay, BRONZclay and COPPRclay.
There are no doubts that having the availability of a digitally controlled kiln, is "first prize".
We are proud to be Australian Distributors for premium quality Paragons Kilns. If you do not see the Paragon kiln that you are looking for in our list of Paragon Kilns, please contact us and we will arrange a quotation for you.
