With this huge jump in the price of metal clay in mind, has anybody ever ordered silver clay from the US, or is there some kind of customs restriction? I ask this because there is a company who sell dry powder silver clay for $80 for 50g but they do not post outside of the US except to Canada. I have a fair few friends in the US and Canada who I am sure would buy and post to me if indeed it is not forbidden.

The dry powder clay has the binders already in it and all one needs to do is add water, and though I do not use it often I do from time to time like to work with precious metal clay but at the current prices ( a 30% increase in the last few weeks) it is prohibitively expensive. I also cannot quite understand why there is this huge jump in clay prices as bullion certainly has not risen so dramatically.
