Live Tips from Tucson

If you’ve been following our blog, you know that we are partnering with our sister company and offering over 100 classes in Tucson at the JOGS Gem & Jewelry Show this year. We have a very impressive list of instructors offering myriad of techniques.

We’ve asked our instructors to give us a few quick tips that we could share with all of you. Today I wanted to feature a tip sent to us from Brenda Branson. Brenda is teaching two classes in Metal Clay.

Bronze Metal Clay Tip

For the ultimate shine on bronze metal clay:

  1. Brush the fired piece under water with liquid detergent and stiff brass brush until cleaned.
  2. Then follow with a wet, soapy brushing using a soft bristled brass brush.
  3. Tumble with steel shot for 45-60 minutes in a rotary tumbler.
