Bonschelle Metal Clay Firing Service

Bonschelle Metal Clay Firing Service

Crafting with metal clay is fun, creative, and you can obtain beautiful results with less cost than silver or gold clays. However a kiln is needed to fire the dried clay pieces as they need to be covered with carbon in order to fire correctly. Not everyone has the resources to buy a kiln and buying one can be costly if you only wish to make clay pieces as a hobby every now and then. But you needn't miss out on enjoying this great craft - at Bonschelle we can fire your items for you for a small charge. Add the service to your cart at the bottom of this page. 

Please note this service is for items made with Bonschelle Bronze Metal Clay items only. We cannot guarantee the outcome of firing other clays. Please see our current rates belowand the terms and conditions:

What's included:

  • Full kiln firing according to Bonschelle Metal Clay instructions (for 1 hour at stage 2)
