BA285 - EGYPTIAN PASTE
The principle of a self-glazing clay was originally developed
in ancient Egypt and is now available as Egyptian Paste. It is a self-glazing
clay. You need only the powders, a few lengths of nichrome wire, an electric
kiln and a little imagination to create a limitless variety of beads, buttons,
scarabs, charms and a wide assortment of jewellery. Quite simple to work with by
adding enough water to the powder to make a paste. Pieces can be formed by
rolling on a clean, non-absorbent surface or in the palm of your hand or by hand
modelling. To allow for complete glazing, beads and buttons can be dried by
being strung on a piece of nichrome wire (the glaze is in the paste and comes to
the surface during drying). Fired to Cone 06, the colours are vivid and bright. Stains
and oxides can be added for the desired colour effects. Recipes can be
supplied upon request or at point of purchase.
