Ok, I think I've got it.
At least with thinner pieces. Thicker ones are still coming out black and not sintered, and cracking apart when moved. But the graphics do show my success with thinner metal. Copper is new to the metal clay world, and we are experimenting here. Fine silver clay is soooo much more predictable. But since I'm at the beginning of my learning curve, I'd rather fool around with the relatively cheap new copper to get the techniques down. I do love the warm coloring and love the iridescence I can get when I patina the finished pieces. Like looking at, or wearing a warm rainbow.
