There are many ways to make a metal clay ring. Complex construction tools, ring mandrels sets and all the different sizings from country to country can further complicate the process.This new free video demonstrates just how easy it can be when you make your own custom sized ring mandrel built to fit the texture. You can create a seamless continuous pattern with a few simple items you probably already have in your home studio.
You can learn ALL my secrets for making correctly sized metal clay rings in my new ebook MetalClayRevolution Masterclass "Metal Clay Rings Comprehensive Sizing Guide"now availablefor only $39.95! (CLICK ABOVE IMAGE)
This 76 page full color PDF takes you step by step through all the techniques and methods I use in the studio to create accurately sized rings successfully in metal clay. All you need to know is the clay shrinkage rate and you can use my resizing formula to determine how big to make your ring so it shrinks down to the right ring size after firing. This is the only ring sizing conversion method that can be easily adapted to all the different varieties and brands of metal clay on the market today. This book includes the complete process for creating a custom sized ring mandrel, making a firing investment ring sizing insert along with how to make a mold to cast just the right size, how to set up a ring for firing to avoid distortion, my ring resizing chart and everything you need to know to start making correctly sized rings in metal clay.

Over the last year, we’ve traveled, explored and have been repeatedly awe-struck by intricate temple art and architecture, ancient ruins, indigenous crafts, and an unending variety of flora and fauna throughout Southeast Asia.
In addition to inspiring new Tanner/Tiekenart work these experiences moved me to create and share a brand new series of hand-drafted Signature Texture Plates:
The Metamorphosis Collection
While the component centric original designs were inspired by the region we now call home, they are my own unique illustrations... not clip art copies.
Created for dimensional metal clay applications (incorporating over 11 years of professional expertise) these new textures feature ultra-fine details, elaborate granulation elements, consistent and crisp line quality, rolling tracks, easy cut borders and built in spillover groves to encourage clean impressions. They also integrate beautifully with my entire line of Signature Die Cut Tools. Just add your own artistic voice.
Over the coming weeks I’ll continue sharing project ideas and how to videos as we explore creating with these new designs together. Check out the latest free project video “The Glass Shadow Box” featuring my new Signature Texture Plate Metamorphosis Collection Set 1. The methods and techniques presented have been tried and proven to yield the best results.
I’ve been working on some exciting new projects, starting with the release of a Masterclass tutorial ebook featuring projects taught only in my hands-on workshops.
“Prayer Box Pendant” features the complete step by step process in detailed pictures demonstrating techniques including tiny hidden hinge construction, invisible tension closure, decorative swing bail, granulation, simplified hollow form method, layered ornamentation and so much more. 226 pages and over 800 full color images, this new ebook is sure to expand your metal clay repertoire.

Season's Greetings!Fireable stones have always been a great way to incorporate sparkle and color to metal clay but building clean settings can be tricky. Other tools have endeavored to resolve this with complex contraptions or layering stencils. I've developed a new streamlined processand am excited to share my collection of Contemporary Stone Setting/Die Cut Tools. The frames come in three round designs which fit 4mm, 6mm & 8mm fireable stones. Perfect for adding granulation or other elements, they are even calibrated to help prevent your stones from falling out after firing. Available individually, as a project kit and in a complete collection. Be sure to check out my free video below to see how these same tools can create ornamental link loops for your metal clay work.
