Q&A with Patrik Kusek

alfonsab17462160 asked:
Hi is this metal clay course done with torch firing ?
Patrik Kusek answered:
Yes but the same construction techniques can be used to fire in a kiln too.
raenebola10843863 asked:
Can the metal clay be used with "real" metal pieces? For example, if I made a bezel holding a stone could it be attached to say a copper back plate?
Patrik Kusek answered:
Metal clay is "real" metal. Anything you can do with other metals you can do with metal clay. HOWEVER, just like properties of copper will be different from sterling, metal clay which is fine silver will have different properties than milled fine silver. A good example is soldering. It will take much more solder to solder a metal clay bezel onto copper than regular fine silver bezel cup, as an example. I'm sorry I accidently erased your email. If you see this please send your email again. thanks

Mr.Kusek ~ Please excuse me for taking up any more of your time. I am just confused as to whether or not you received my email address again? I don't see any of the questions that I posted to you after the first one regarding using metals in conjunction with metal clays....?
Patrik Kusek answered:
Yes I received your email and sent you a response to that email. Sorry for any confusion, I removed your question which had your email so as not to have your email exposed in a public forum. If you didn't receive my email let me know and I will resend.
raenebola10843863 asked:
Mr. Kugel thank you for answering my questions, I apologize for taking up so much of your time. Unfortunately, I did not receive your answer and when I tried to answer you from my email address it said that the message was undeliverable for some reason.
Patrik Kusek answered:
Do you have another email address?
