Product Description

Fire Too - 1280°C

Scarva FLAXpaperCLAY is very versatile, strong and flexible at all stages of the making process. Its reinforcing property with the flax fibre content allows the clay to be stretched without tearing. The fibres also seem to add tremendous strength to the sculpture as it dries and this gives a much greater handling ability before firing.

Scarva FLAXpaperCLAY allows the potter to be more of an artist and less of a technician.

• Incredibly strong slabs - even extra thin slabs will fold, bend and drape without tearing.

• Extra large or thick forms hold up under their own weight.

• Greenware re-wets easily and evenly allowing you to re-work, alter or add new clay at any stage of dryness. It is possible with this clay body to build an armature and allow it to dry as a support sculpture that need not be removed for firing.

• Moisture evaporates so evenly from this clay body that it can be force dried with excellent results.

• Exaggerated forms hold their shape. Be careful not to get too extreme: once bisqued, the fibre structure burns out and slumping may occur if the base clay is over fired.

• Greenware, even bone dry, is unbelievably strong and easy to handle or transport if necessary.

• Make Scarva FLAXpaperCLAY into a putty to repair cracks in greenware or to construct forms out of previously made modules. You may even repair or add to already bisqued Scarva FLAXpaperCLAY. For best results you should re-bisque ware after making alterations.

• In addition, the burn out of the flax fibres results in a noticeably lower fired weight, especially in large-scale works and the resulting openness gives improved thermal shock properties to most clay bodies.

Firings can be Oxidised, Reduced, Raku or Salt and Soda.

PLEASE NOTE: Paperclays contain cellulose fibre (small clumps of fibre can be visible due to processing), which may contain traces of carbon that are produced during the production of the fibre which may result in the occasional speck in the clay.

"I bought a selection of five clays as a starter pack as I was so overwhelmed by choice. They arrived very promptly and I was impressed with the considerate attention I received throughout. By phone and email. Not a hitch. The parcel was beautifully and carefully packed and each clay has been a joy to work with. exactly as described and of excellent quality. This is definitely my company of choice and I returned very quickly to make my next purchase. Thoroughly recommended."

"I`ve used this clay for over 10 years and was surprised to find it a different colour to what I`m used to . I was unsure about using it as I was in the middle of a project and wanted to be certain it would fire with no colour discrepancy. Unfortunately I didn`t use it to finish my project as the feedback as to whether it would be a consistent match wasn`t good enough."
