 is more pleasant to work with.

 1.Keramikal

stays plastic throughout the working time and may be re-formed at any stage prior to the final hardening in the baking oven.                              Air hardening materials, by their very nature, tend to start the hardening process from the very minute they are exposed to air. Henceforth, during the shaping time they become less and less plastic and harder and harder to work with.

 

 2.Keramikal

 

 

 

has surprising clinging and healing properties, allowing it to bond to itself and  to other materials such as glass, metals, plastic etc.

 

 3.Keramikal

 

 since it is  mechanically  stable,  allows the forming  of larger objects.

 4.Keramikal ,

may be shaped into more minute details.

5.Keramikal 

may be shaped on a potters wheel.

6.Keramikal 

after final hardening in the oven, is much more water resistant than any air drying paste.                                                                                         (The letter tend to dissolve and lose their shapes, when wet).

   General  Instructions 

 

 

1.   Knead the paste well, before starting the piece.

 

2.   Prepare the piece. If the procedure is long, it is recommended to wet the fingers once in a while to keep the Keramikal plastic.

 

3.   Allow the piece to dry 1 hr. (for very small or thin pieces) to 7 days (for thick objects) in a shaded place. A large piece should be placed on a sheet of cloth  in order to allow for strain formed during the drying process.          

     

4.   To toughen, bake the piece for 30 minutes inside a regular baking oven, preheated to 170 C .

     It is important that the temperature does not exceed 200 C nor fall below  150 C . If you are uncertain of the conditions inside your oven pre-testing, using a small piece, is recommended.

 

5.    The piece can be dyed or painted either before or after baking.     Water, gouash, acrylic or glass paints give the best results. However, since the variety of paints is enormous, pre-testing of the desired paint on a small sample will ensure good results.

 

6.   Unused material should be slightly wetted, wrapped in plastic bag     and kept for future use.
