Adventures in Bronze fired metal clay

So doing some experimenting with different clays. The charms ( stamped coin and heart) were made from fast fire Bronz clay   And was the easiest to Fire but in, wet clay mode it wasn't as easy to work with as Hadars powder Bronze fast fire XT clay.   However Hadars clay is more difficult to fire than fast fire Bronz (from metal clay adventures.)  The thinner rings on here are made from 12g wire. The chunky 6g links toggle and doughnut assembly  are from Hadars powdered clay.  I do love it! I plan on trying Goldie bronze also.

Metal clay great way to get a chunky 6 g flat link look without a rolling mill.
