Bronze metal clay is the natural next choice for the large silver metal clay market; it’s far less expensive, so crafters can expand their creativity creating larger-scale pieces. As a member of the Technical Support Team for Rio Grande (a huge online distributor of jewelry supplies), Yvonne Padilla is an expert at answering crafters’ questions about bronze. In addition to providing step-by-step instructions for 30 projects, she explains how bronze differs from silver clay, how to work with it, and how to attain the lovely verdigris patina that only bronze has. An inspirational gallery and a trouble shooting section complete the fantastic package.

Padilla, one of the first artists to work with bronze clay, uses it to good effect for antique-looking jewelry projects. Photos of pieces by other artists give additional ideas. Crafters with metal clay experience will be able to use this book after a little practice with the bronze alloy.” - Library Journal
