  • PMC Standard and PMC3

    Hi to everyone, I am new here today and what a brill looking site this is. I have been learning how to use Art Clay Silver and PMC Standard. I prefer the PMC as its easier for me to use. I am going to try PMC3 next but am a bit frustrated in working out how to make my items into brooches. Can I embed sterling silver brooch backs into the unfired PMC and or PMC3. I made the mistake of trying this with the Art Clay and wasted a large lump of it!! Quite a few of the things I have been making would look great (though I say it myself ) as brooches. I shall post some pictures soon so you can see what I mean. However, I would really appreciate some advice, I cant solder and feel sure you dont need to with the PMC. Any help most gratefully accepted.

      You're best avoiding sterling into PMC as the firing would weaken it.
      The best fittings I've found were from silverclay.co.uk you'll find them
      (and other findings) on this page

      No soldering involved

        Hi, many thanks indeed for the advice. I shall get in touch with Silver Clay UK I have bought things through them before, they were very helpful and have a good range of stuff. Should I put some pictures of my bits I do on this thread or is it best to put it on the one I think I saw about peoples work?
