Firing Schedule

HIGH FIRE Suitable for Firing ~ AUSSIE COPPER, AUSSIE SNOW WHITE COPPER, AUSSIE PINK BRASS & AUSSIE VINTAGE BRASS

Aussie Metal Clays require to be fired in a Kiln using Activated Coconut carbon and the firing schedules have 2 parts.
Please remember this firing schedule is based on starting with a cold kiln. The thickness of the piece is also something you have to consider. If a piece is any thicker than 6mm you may need to add extra firing time.

Rehydrating Aussie Metal Clay – Make sure you use DISTILLED or DEMINERALISED WATER as it hydrates the clay better than ordinary water. Keep any moist clay in a sealed container so it doesn’t dry out.

1st Stage Fire:

Set pieces on a bed of activated coconut carbon at a depth of approx. 15-18mm under pieces. Ramp at 700C/1292F to a hold temperature of 500C/932F. Hold for 30 to 45 minutes for complete burnout of organic binder. Let cool.

2nd Stage Fire:

See instructions inside the packet for this specific clay.

Do Test Pieces First To See Correct Temperature For Your Kiln. Your Kiln temperature may need to be modified to suit – not all Kilns fire the same. Remove your pieces from the activated coconut once cool and your pieces are ready to brass brush, tumble & polish.

Shrinkage: Between 12 & 15%
