  • PMC course

    Hi all...Just had to share this with you cos I'm so proud of myself.
    I did a 1 day PMC course today. Had a whale of a time. I recommend it to anyone. I made 3 pendants using 3 different technics.
    Sorry pics not very good.


    The pics just do not do them justice but I don't care cos I got the real thing. lol

        I know it is fiddly to use, I tried it last year, the clay sticks to your fingers unless you use oil and then it becomes slimy and it also dries very quickly, it sounds like - "yeah simple, make a pendant out of clay" but hey, it is not easy at all, so well done. They are excellent !

          I'm sooooo jealous. I really want to do that course but can't decide whether I'd get chance to make anything at home. Am debating between that and lampwork beads.

          Your pieces look great though. Did it take long per piece?

              They're gorgeous, but 'scuse my ignorance - what does PMC stand for?

                Oh these are fab! I really like the square one!

                I've been meaning to make a cage pendant myself, but I'm too scared to blow torch the cork clay I used for the inside. :S

                  Autumn Faerie, PMC stands for Precious Metal Clay - It's a clay made from tiny silver particles and a binder which gives it it's clay like qualities.

                  When you fire the final piece the binder burns away and the sliver particles fuse together leaving you with a piece that it nearly pure silver .999 rather than that of sterlings .925 silver content.

                    OH they are really lovely. I love the cage pendant. These photos never do the work we do justice do they ? But I can see these are beautiful. Well done. xxx

                        They look brilliant - I've been trying to book on a PMC course since the summer but haven't yet been available at the right time for the class. Next year hopefully!

                            They are gorgeous Hils - especially like the square one and the cage one.

                            Where was your course - I'd love to do one but here in South Yorkshire craft courses are a bit thin on the ground.

                              I'd soo suggest a day/beginners course to people if you have £70 or so available! I got to make a pendant, ring, earrings and a random bead - even if you do nothing more with the stuff, you still have some cool jewellery

                              Lilac - They're fab! The square one is more me but the last one is seriously cool, did it take longer??
                              Hi, to be honest I'm not sure how long each piece took. I made the square one first, dried it, filed, smoothed etc then while it was fireing in a kiln, we made the leaf. then while that was fireing we made the cage,very hard to use seringe with one hand, then went back to the square to polish it.
                              It was only a one day course, I think for something like the square It could take 2 hours ish. start to finish.
