PMC is a fine silver infused compound clay mixture that allows you to sculpt your own jewelry into many usable shapes and applications.
Precious Metal Clay was developed in the early 1990’s in Japan and consists of microscopic particles of pure silver (or fine gold powder) and a water-soluble binder which burns off during firing. Later versions of PMC have much lower shrinkage rates, allowing much finer detail to be worked into designs. Using precious metal clay to create PMC jewelry has fast become a popular trait among jewelry makers, with wide flexibility for designs.
In this 2 hour beginners class you will discover the wonderful world of Precious Metal Clay. Using clay tools you will be able to mold , form , stamp and cut your own unique designed silver jewelry Once fired, the clay matrix bakes away and you are left with a pure .999 fine silver creation. Tumble, burnish, and patina your projects to get interesting effects. All materials included. Students are invited to bring in a piece of art glass to include in their design.
