Metal clay can be air-dried or placed on a mug warmer to shorten the drying time (Photo 1). Alternatively, place the clay in a food dehydrator dedicated to nonfood use.

To check the moisture content of metal clay, place the piece on a sheet of glass. After 15 seconds, lift the clay from the glass. Any condensation on the glass indicates that the clay contains moisture (Photo 2). Do not fire the clay until it is completely dry.
