Additional Photos:


Goldie Copper™ is a very pure copper clay. The powder contains 99,9% of pure dendrite copper. After firing and removing the patina created in the firing process the metal is very light and has a beautiful color. Goldie Copper™ is an environmentally friendly product. The binders are organic and non toxic. Goldie Copper™ shrinks by about 14-20% (old formula 12%-18%) on firing, depending on the shape and the size of the piece. Dried clay can be ground up to a powder and reconstituted. Goldie Copper™ is simple and economical to use.

Goldie Clay Tips by Joy Funnell

Always mix the powder up really well in the tub before you start each time to ensure the binder is well distributed.

Let the clay rest for 30 minutes or so after mixing before you start to use it. This makes it much more workable.

Goldie clays do not stick to your hands when at the correct consistency, and they stays workable for a long time. Baby wipes work well for cleaning up edges and refining Goldie clays.

If the clay starts to feel a bit dry while you are working add some more water to it and then reroll it well before continuing. Rolling out the clay distributes the water evenly through it and makes it lovely and smooth to work with.

Keep unused mixed up clay in an airtight tub - no need to refrigerate.

When making larger pieces in Goldie clays consider increasing the binder burn out time and the second phase firing time.

Always make a few test pieces first and work out the best firing time for you as kilns can vary.
