    hi, I just stopped by to say what a fantastic artist and writer you are! Everyone of your books is fantastic, full of lots of pictures and absolutely great projects. Some of the best books on the subject of metal clay that I have had the pleasure of paying for. Worth every penny!!!! I savor each project and each page!

    Thanks for writing such great book and for putting in so many photos of the projects!!!

    Hadar, I’m having trouble firing your original clay. Half has scintered, half wont budge from the powder stage, despite re-firing for up to 3 hrs several times. I’ve followed your direstions to the letter but no good – any clues?

  • Hadar Jacobson Says:

    Tina,

    If it’s powder, the problem is most likely in the first phase of firing. I don’t know your kiln, but I suggest extending the firing time to an hour (with no lid). You can also try to raise the temperature. From my experience, if you manage to get rid of the binder at the first phase, sintering is not a problem. Good luck!

    From the first time I saw your creativity on the PMC Guild, I fell in love with it! I love your little dresses and how you think outside the box. I am going to try your powder form and am so excited to get started with it. I am a mixed media artist all the way and have been a commercial artist for many years so this is just the icing on the cake for my creative juices!! You have really inspired me Hadar!

  • Judy Says:

    Hadar,
    Could you just make slices and glue them together with the cement they use to glue them together when they line kilns? Great thinking and great idea!

  • Hadar Jacobson Says:

    Judy,

    I don’t see why not. Whatever is easier and more durable.

    Hello hadar,
    if i am sintering to 900 degrees centigrade, at what point do i introduce my sample into the furnace for optimum sintering results

  • Hadar Jacobson Says:

    Funmi,

    This is not how I fire. {lease refer to my instruction manual at http://artinsilver.com/Quick-fire_clay_instruction_manual.pdf.

    i’d really love to see a search button added to the home page of your blog – is it possible? often i want to see what you have to say on something specific but can’t find ti easily enough.

    also – do you have a link for any chatter about firing with cork clay?

    thanks hadar!

  • Hadar Jacobson Says:

    Heidi Jo,

    Your wish is my command. A search button has been added.

    You can fire with cork clay. At the first phase, hold for about 1:30 hours to let it all burn out.

    Just finished a two day workshop, drove home from Chicago and cannot sleep thinking of the fabulous experience I had in your workshop. Thank you so much for opening a whole new world of metal clay possibilities!

    I have fired smart bronze test strips twice and both times it totally desinigrated to nothing? Fired at 1470 for 2hrs. buried in carbon, 1/2″ below and 2″ above in round stainless steel bowl. PLEASE give me am idea of what I’m doing wrong? I’m so looking forward to using it….

  • Brian Says:

    I fired 5 different Brilliant Bronze pieces of thicknesses from 5 cards to 9 cards thick at the S3 schedule in a new Kingpin 88 kiln. All of them except the thickest one met an ashy powdery death, either disintegrating or barely sintering. I am at 5000 ft altitude. Why did this happen? What can I do to correct this problem?

  • Chantal Morin Says:

    Hi hope you will see my comments. Can I do a ring with brillant bronze?
