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.

This internet resource is provided by Cherry Heaven, an international distributor, on-line shop, and support centre for kilns, materials, tools, and tumblers. It's not a bead, ceramics, crafts, glass, or metal-clay home-business, selling a few things to a market niche.
As it's on-line, 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, home diagnostics, repairs, or reselling opportunities.
Cherry Heaven is a shop in Corfe Castle village, in Dorset, South-West England. The surrounding countryside includes green farmland, dramatic heritage cliffs, pretty stone cottages, historic buildings, sandy beaches, protected coves, open heathland, hill-top panoramic views, and peaceful villages. And lively seaside resorts. To look at some photos, use the dorset link on the front page.
Cherry Heaven is an EU distributor for US-made Paragon Kilns, and has been commended for an outstanding performance as one of Paragon's top-selling distributors over 2007 to : a pleasing outcome since the UK is only one third the area of Texas and one fortieth the area of the US.
Paragon Industries started as a family business in 1948. It's now the world's leading manufacturer of electric kilns and furnaces, and has built over 420,000. The 4,400 square metre site, in Mesquite, Texas, USA, has over 70 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 conform to the demanding UL 499 standard in the US, and are CE Marked for the EU. Paragon is Greek for Model Of Perfection.
The Kitiki Studio provides an Art Clay educational programme, as classes, masterclasses, workshops, and Art Clay Level 1 and Level 2 certification courses through partners. I can recommend teachers so, if you're interested, mail or call.
The on-line shop link is below the menu bar near the top of the page, on the right: you won't have to create an account, register, log on, look up your membership number, remember a password, sign up, join a club, or agree to be emailed. And the total won't be more than you expected because VAT and UK-mainland delivery are included.
