   • the new bronze and copper clays, with must-have instructions for successful firing
   • up-to-date, detailed information on firing with stones
   • an improved method for calculating accurate ring sizes
   • two recently developed techniques for etching metal clay
   • new techniques for adding color, including working with pigments and enamels
   • all-new, inspiring galleries of work by prominent metal clay artists

Even if you don¹t have metal working skills, the Keum-Boo on PMC techniques Celie's developed provide a simple and relatively inexpensive way to add the luster of gold to silver work.
    For the more advanced, Celie demonstrates applying the gold to large, hollow forms, and to complex shapes.
    Learn step by step instruction for making your own coil cover, cutting the gold foil with scissors, a craft knife, and paper punches, burnishing it on to the heated silver, finishing and patina, and creating your own texturing tools. Find out about sources for the gold, different thicknesses of foil, using and maintaining tools and many other tips for mastering the ancient art of Keum-boo.
