Swamp Ape Studios has no financial interest in any of the entities listed below. They are simply resources I have used and been happy with. A metal clay resource not being on my list doesn’t imply a bad review. It might be one that I simply have never used.

Sources for metal clay and metal clay tools:

Cooltools.us

Metalclaysupply.com

PMCconnection.com

General jewelry supplies, including metal clay:

Firemountaingems.com

Riogrande.com

Resources for learning:

Cre8tivefire.com. This website was the late, lamented Metal Clay Artist magazine, which forced, by circumstances beyond the publisher’s control, to cease publication.

Folkschool.org. The John C Campbell Folk School, in Brasstown, NC, teaches week long and weekend classes in many, many arts, including metal clay, metalsmithing, and enameling. It is truly a magical place, a modern temple to the muses. I can’t say enough good things about it. If you have never been and you can, go.

Pameast.net. I have learned most of what I know about metal clay from Pam East. She teaches in many locations (see her website) and has written and produced instructional videos.
