Precious Metal Clay is a clay-like compound consisting of powdered silver in an organic binder. It can be formed and textured using simple tools to make earrings, pendants and other jewelry. When fired the organic binder burns off and the metal particles sinter leaving pure silver. It is fun and easy to work with.
A basic tool kit and packet of PMC3 are included in the class price. Students will go home with at least one finished piece of jewelry.
Bring to Class: notebook, pencil, ideas and curiosity. If you have things you would like to use to texture your work bring those too.
