White Satin is Now Available and Future Plans

Hadar’s Clay™ White Satin is now available on our online store.

White Satin is high-fire clay which makes a strong, silver-color metal. It is fired in one phase only and is compatible with Champagne Bronze, Dark Champagne Bronze (not available yet), Friendly Copper, and Low-shrinkage Steel XT. All can be fired in one piece. You can find the Instruction Manual for White Satin in the right-hand pane of this blog.

In the coming months we will be releasing four more products, all meant to simplify the firing process. They all fire in just one phase and this is why we call them Friendly:

Dark Champagne Bronze is also a “friendly,” high-fire clay. It fires just like Champagne Bronze, but its color is darker and resembles Quick-fire Bronze.

Friendly Rose Bronze is the same as Quick-fire Rose Bronze but fires in one phase only.

Friendly Bronze is a mid-fire clay, the same as Quick-fire Bronze, but fires in one phase only. The color is similar to that of Dark Champagne Bronze so there are actually 2 one-fire bronze clays. The reason for mid-fire Friendly Bronze is the following item:

One-fire Mokume-Gane Sampler is a sampler containing 50 grams of Friendly Bronze, 50 grams of Friendly Copper, and 25 grams of Pearl Grey Steel XT. For mokume-gane lovers, this combination is mid-fire, fires in one phase, and results in a smooth surface that is easy to clean.

Good results for Mokume-gane are achieved in the mid-fire range only. At high-fire schedule there will be no sharp contrast between the colors.

    Is it ok to use QF low shrinkage steel xt for makume gane with QF brilliant bronze and QF copper if its used in small amounts? I ask because the checklist says to use pearl grey steel xt? Thanks for your help Hadar!

  • Violet Says:

    Does White Satin need a dedicated set of tools to avoid contamination or can it share with steel or copper and bronze? Thanks!

  • Hadar Jacobson Says:

    Violet, White Satin does not require dedicated tools.

  • Georgie Galante Says:

    Hadar, at the end of this blog post it says click here to find a document that explains clays graphically. When I click on it I get a 404 error code. Can I find it somewhere else? You don’t mention any other title.
