Reduce clay usage by up to 50%!

We commissioned multi-talented professional graphic artists and illustrators to design this amazing line of templates specifically with style, size and clay consumption in mind!

We then spent weeks consulting with some of the most respected and gifted metal clay artists from around the globe to verify the functionality of the templates and to provide their own unique style and techniques.  (Evelyn Pelati Dombkowski, Lorena Angulo, Jane Font, Joy Funnell and more)  What they came up with truly blew our minds and went above and beyond what we could have ever imagined!  We hope you love this new series as much as our artist ambassadors do!

Mix, match and stack designs from different templates to create amazing effects!  Add texture and holes for additional intrigue!

More Information
 
The high fashion QuikArt UltraLite Series was initially conceived due to rising prices of silver and gold.  We wanted a way for artists to be able to continue to create sizable pieces of art jewelry without blowing their budget.  The “papel picado” style of these templates can reduce clay usage by up to 50% compared to a traditional solid piece of similar size, while at the same time creating a lighter and more comfortable piece of jewelry!

Each template is made from durable and crystal clear material.  This clarity allows for perfect alignment every time!  Each template measures 3.5"x5.0". They are easily stored in an index card or recipe box!
  • Use with metal & polymer clays or sheet metal
  • Quickly create bases for complex designs
  • Stack, mix and match to create intrigue
  • Easily cut shapes using a the QuikArt Stylus

INSTRUCTIONS:

For the best results, make sure your work surface, metal clay and template are lubricated with Hatties® NoStick or other lubricant.  Hold the template firmly on the clay when cutting to maintain proper alignment.  Always start with the cutouts FIRST, then proceed to the last outer perimeter cut.

When working the cutouts, repeat the cut around the opening several times until you see the part to be removed moving around.  Then use the QuikArt™ Stylus or needle tool to lift the part out of the cavity.  You can then use the Stylus to smooth the inside of the opening.

The last step is to carefully nick the template tabs free from your creation.

Keep in mind that the part is delicate.  Any corrective work you can do such as smoothing is done before the clay becomes bone dry.  Use care performing any refining work in the bone dry state.  It is highly recommended that cleanup, refining and finishing be done in the fired state.
