The RingCore™ Textured/Channeled ring liners are highly polished precision castings using the lost wax process for maximum density and strength requiring very little finishing and are about 20 gauge thick. The .5mm side rims help contain your design and build it higher plus it allows for a finished edge. In addition sintering with the liner your additions will also mechanically lock into place as it dries, shrinks and fires. The RingCore™ gives you a solid ring foundation of a specific ring size upon which to add simple to sophisticated creations with even the most delicate of design and will result in a solid creation with a long life. They are available in Silver*, Bronze and Copper in two widths. The application process is simple. Make sure the surface is clean then apply a layer of oil based paste from the same type of metal to create the bonding layer and allow to dry completely then begin your creation. Fire the ring as you would for the particular metal of choice. Treat the ring as you would if making additions to already fired pieces. It is the same experience. RingCore™ liners can also be used for polymer and lamp work glass creations. The silver alloy we use has a higher silver content than Sterling and can be legally marked as Sterling. This alloy will not oxidize during firing and allows it to readily sinter with all silver metal clays.
How Do Artists Like RingCores???
"You do not have to worry anymore about sizing when making a ring with metal clay, The RingCore will have the perfect size already made for you. They are very easy to use, just add some paste to the core and then apply your metal clay on top of it."
"I found, while working on the rings that you are relieved of three really big anxieties. First, you don't have to worry about the sizing. That's a huge worry. Secondly, you can put a lot of pressure on the ring while you're working on it and don't have to worry about breakage. For me, that's also a huge worry. Thirdly, the milled metal makes for a sturdier finished product. I found being relieved of those anxieties made for a much more pleasurable experience all around!"
"When adding texture around outer surface of the ring there is very little chance of breaking anything because the liner is solid metal, whereas with an all metal clay ring at the greenware stage breaking the ring band is always a risk, especially for beginners. I can see possibilities for enamelled silver ring bands which I would be happy to experiment further on."
