Copper metal clay, or CopprClay as its brand name is spelled, must be fired in a kiln while stored in a container filled with activated carbon granules. While it does require a little different approach to firing than silver metal clay, it is not overly difficult if you follow these simple steps.

To fire copper metal clay, you’ll need the following equipment and materials:

Kiln (preferably a programmable one)
1 – 4 inch metal pan with lid
1 Metal clay removal fork
Activated carbon granules
Copper metal clay pieces ready to fire

Safety Note: Make sure to follow all manufacturers’ safety instructions including but not limited to working in a well-ventilated area, making sure the kiln has a wide enough area around it and is placed on a level work surface, and wearing safety equipment.
