|I fired the metal clay clasp. It turned out fine. No warpage, just smaller due to shrinkage. I fired it for 2 hours at 1290 degrees. |
Pictured on the left is an un-fired clasp box
and on the right the fired clasp box with tongue clasp.
|I have a problem with the tongue clasp. The ball I attached as a press button is too close to the top of the box. I am unable to compress the tongue clasp. |
So, I am going to cut off the tongue clasp and make this box the receiver box.
|I have made a new tongue clasp box with a longer tongue and shorter button.|
|This is the top view of the new clasp.|
|This view shows how I have attached the clasp to the box. |
Now its time to fire this one!
