It's so exciting to see the results of my experimentation with silver metal clay. The PMC comes as a small lump of heavy grey clay that bears no resemblance to the finished product. It dries to a whiter shade of grey before it's fired. But then ...through the magic of intense heat...the former clay is returned to you as a gorgeous piece of silver. Add a half an ounce of elbow grease while its brushed with a soft wire brush and Voila! It's a piece of fine jewelry! I feel like Rumpelstiltskin.


Have a nice Easter/Passover/weekend. Pin It

Wow they are beautiful!

I have a packet here and am waiting for a nice chunk of time to brave opening them! I have used it before in a workshop but didn't come up with anything as beautiful as your pieces.
