Are you related to the other store called "Metal Clay Supply"?
We are not.
Do you offer retail bulk discount or any type of discount?
We currently offer retail bulk discount on BRONZclay and COPPRclay clay. Purchase more and get a bigger discount. All distributors will
have virtually the exact same pricing therefore your choice of supplier is really a matter of convenience. We also offer a designer discount on tools and we offer certified discount on tools and clay/paste.
How do you compare to a US-based retailer?
After the exchange, our prices are generally identical to those you would find with the major US-based retailers sometimes even cheaper. Our prices are very competitive.
Why do you not charge in US dollars?
Simply because credit cards charge ridiculous exchange rates and as a customer, you end up paying more than you should because of it.
Also, because we are a Canadian-based business, Canadian Laws state that we must apply taxes to a Canadian currency total. It is just makes
it easier for us to administer.
What is the difference between Art Clay Silver and PMC?
Art Clay Silver is manufactured by Aida Chemicals of Japan. PMC is manufactured by Mitsubishi Materials of Japan. The core
of the product is the same, however the manufacturing process is such that there are technical differences which lead to some minor handling,
shrinkage and firing variations.
We do not have a preference either way...It is our opinion that the selection really boils down to what you want to make with
the piece and your familiarity with the product.
