    Use your tweezers to flip them over (as soon as the curling starts)
    It's because with torch firing (and sometimes hob firing) the heat can be uneven
    and cause uneven scintering which pulls the piece out of shape...
    Hope that helps & let us know how you get on

    I'll try that, Nicola, thanks. I have tried turning the piece over but not as soon as the curling starts. I thought it may be to with the fact that the heat with a torch is uneven.

    Default curling silver clay

    if the piece starts to curl as it sometimes does when it starts shrinking, depending on the design of your piece, try turning it over mid fire and firing it from the other side also, this has worked for me.
