SilverEtch is a sheet of material that allows you to etch a permanent pattern onto Art Clay silver, PMC silver, metal clays, and resin clays. It doesn't use any corrosive or toxic chemicals and is as easy as firing on a transfer.
SilverEtch comes with five sheets of designs and full instructions. You need a kiln.

|SILVER ETCH: NOTES|
SilverEtch is a pattern on an acrylic sheet. The pattern is made of a special chemical mix that, when fired, etches into the surface of Art Clay silver, PMC silver, metal clays, and resin clays. The finished pieces can be burnished, tumbled, and polished.
SilverEtch comes as a pack of five patterns, although more will be available soon. And you'll be able to have your own patterns made into SilverEtch sheeets.
|ART CLAY UK|
is a Cherry Heaven internet resource. It's a top-tier international distributor for Texas-made Paragon kilns, furnaces, ovens, accessories, and tools, and has been one of their top-selling partners from 2006 to : a pleasing outcome since the UK is only one third the area of Texas and one fortieth the area of the US.
As this is an on-line resource, there isn't a paper catalogue or a price list. However, you can mail or call a technician about kilns, power supplies, public area safety, a special project, business ideas, diagnostics, repairs, or reselling opportunities.
Cherry Heaven was the name of the design studio in Kensington, West London, then the shop in Corfe Castle, Dorset. It's now an on-line distributor and retailer in West Holme, Dorset, South-West England. Although there's no longer a real shop, Cherry Heaven is still the working name.
The surrounding countryside includes green farmland, dramatic heritage cliffs, pretty stone cottages, historic buildings, sandy beaches, protected coves, open heathland, hill-top panoramic views, market towns, and peaceful villages. And lively seaside resorts. To look at some photos, use the dorset link below the menu bar near the top of this page.
Paragon Industries started as a family business in 1948. It's now the world's leading manufacturer of kilns and furnaces, and has built over 430,000. The 4,400 square-metre site, in Mesquite, Texas, USA, has over 80 full-time staff. A new 1,700 square-metre warehouse is under construction.
During manufacture, every kiln is checked at every stage by a technician and signed-off before shipping. They're simply but robustly engineered, and you're buying a comprehensive, versatile, safe, low-cost kiln: a kiln with a future.
Paragon kilns are TUV tested, and CL and CSA approved for the US, and are CE Marked for the EU. Paragon is Greek for Model Of Perfection.
|CLASSES AND COURSES|
The Kitiki Studio provided an Art Clay educational programme, as classes, masterclasses, workshops, and Art Clay Level 1 and Level 2 certification. However, as we're in a rural area, I now recommend teachers that might be nearer, so mail or call.
