Step-by-Step Tutorials

  • There are no limitations on the types and brands of metal clay used.
  • Articles should be submitted as Word or Word Perfect documents using a Times New Roman or Arial font, 10 or 12 pt with only one space between sentences. If prepared on a MAC please save as a word document.
  • State all materials and sources used within the tutorial at the beginning of your article.
  • All photographs should be taken using a landscape (horizontal) format, without altering the position of the camera if possible. Items show up best on a plain light background. Be sure to turn off the auto date on your camera. Do not crop photos. Photo formats should be stand-alone pdfs, tiffs, or jpgs, 300 ppi and a minimum of 4”x 6”.
  • When submitting a tutorial, It is vital to connect each photo to the text that describes it. Please number each step and use that number in the name of the corresponding photo.
  • A glamour shot of the finished project should be submitted with the article.
  • To send your photos, article and bio to Metal Clay Today, we recommend ‘Dropbox’, a free program for file sharing.
  • A video or link to a video which demonstrates your technique for inclusion in the article is an option.
