Precious Metal Clay (PMC+ Silver Slip) represents a dramatic development in the handling of precious metals.
PMC+ consists of microscopic particles of silver or gold suspended in an organic binder to create a pliable material with a consistency similar to modeling clay.
PMC silver clay and gold clay both, can be worked with the fingers and with simple tools to create a vast range of forms and surfaces unobtainable or too laborious with traditional techniques.
When PMC is heated to high temperatures, the binder burns away and the metal particles fuse to form solid metal 99.9% pure that can be sanded, soldered, colored, and polished like conventional material.
Finishing is almost as versatile as the forming process.
A soft brass brush is one of the best ways to begin burnishing your new creation, followed by a polishing compound and even metal polishing tools.
Silver PMC can be colored with liver of sulfur an excellent oxidizer, or colorants and soldered as with conventional metals.
For Embedding Objects Into PMC+ Try; Cubic Zirconia, Synthetic Ruby, Synthetic Sapphire, High Fired Ceramics, Enamel Powder, and More!

Work, roll, cut, shape and fire versatile PMC+™ like clay. After firing, it comes out of your oven as a pure silver object. PMC+ shrinks less and has a stronger molecular bond than original formula PMC®. It fires at a lower temperature, allowing you to combine sterling findings with your PMC+ before firing.
