Goldie Roman Bronze™ is bronze of a beautiful golden bronze color, resembling the colors used in times of the Roman Empire. The clay is a bit more grainy, thanks to larger than usual bronze particles. After firing and polishing with a 3M wheel or sandpaper, you can notice tiny bronze speckles that reflect the light and create an interesting sparkling effect.
Goldie Roman Bronze™ is an environmentally friendly product. It contains approximately 89% copper and 11% tin. The binders are organic and non toxic. Goldie Roman Bronze™ shrinks by about 10%-12% on firing, depending on the shape and the size of the piece. Dried clay can be ground up to a powder and reconstituted. Goldie Roman Bronze™ 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.
