  • It's been a long time!

    Hello everyone,

    I suppose I'm re-introducing myself as it's been a very long time since I posted on CF, I've got two careers now after years of college & Uni and it's great to be back. I'm a PMC and polymer clayer by heart and after many years of knitting I decided to teach myself how to crochet...I'm a bit obsessed!!

    I look forward to joining in the discussions and posting up photos of what I get up to

    Welcome back Jules.

    There must be something in the air at the moment - you are the second member to return after an extended absence within the last few days.

    Look forward to seeing pictures of what you've been making.

    Linda

      Hello Linda,

      It must be because it's a brand new year and we long for reaching out to crafty stuff. I love my day job but I also love teaching & making and this is a great way to reconnect.

      Thanks for having me back

          Hi Jules, I love PMC too although it's about 8 years since I last made anything but last night I was hunting out my parents old enameling kiln in the loft with a view to see if it still works. I'm not sure it'll get hot enough for PMC but I'm hazarding a guess that if it was hot enough for enameling then it's hot enough for PMC. We'll find out soon enough! I know my PMC will have dried out solid, do you have any tips on rewetting it? I'm thinking bash it into a dust and then add a few drops of water?

            Hi and welcome back. I'm pretty new to the forum and love polymer clay - hopefully I'll be able to pick your brains in the future :-)

                  Hello Alibear

                  Enamelling kilns usually get heated to around 787c for firing enamels so yes, there's clay that can be fired at 700c for 30 minutes. And yes, bash the clay to release pent up stress and add some water a bit at a time to get a clay consistency
