I am an artist and an art teacher. I began experimenting with Art Clay Silver (which is a brand of metal clay) about four years ago. I became a Certified Level I Instructor after studying with Pam East. I love the versatility of the medium. I sketch out my ideas on paper before I begin, and sometimes I use polymer clay to work out my ideas before I actually open my package of metal clay. The metal clay dries quickly and you have to work fast. After the clay has dried, I hand file it, then fire it inside a kiln. The end result is 99.9% silver! I also paint in acrylics and watercolor and do a little photography as well.
