    Hi, I'm new to making jewellery from PMC but I've got the hang of it now and plan to sell my jewellery soon
    But does anyone think PMC clay is really expensive for so little? :?

    Re: pmc

    Sorry to sound a bit silly but what is PMC? Polymer Clay? I am expecting an order soon of exclusive Pendants made of Polymer Clay - they won't be cheap. It really depends what you do with it I suppose. Have you got some pictures for us to see and maybe we can give you some comments? If you make beads for instance I think the competition could be tough unless yours are truly original. Only my thoughts....

      Hi,

      I use silver art clay which is similar to PMC. I only started using it last year, so am pretty new to it. I used way too much clay on the first pieces that I made. I really wasn't too sure how much to use. I recently made quite a few pendants & rings from silver art clay and was quite suprised at how many pieces I managed to make from it.

      I have made some wholesale enquiries for silver art clay. Most of the companies will require you to place a regular order with them and have a minimum order value. The order value is usually too high for me, but I have found packs of silver art clay with 10% free and if you buy 3 packs you get another 10% off. So it's worth looking around.

      Good luck with your jewellery.

        wow! did you only start last year anne? you clever bunny you!! just had a look, and i love the galaxy ring................ gorgeous!

        had a look at one of the sites for the art clay, but cant remember how much a 'lump' of it was, but would be very interested in a very rough guide as to how much for a certain weight and how many rings, for example, you might be able to make from it. would love to give it a go, but the whole concept would be very new to me as not really done any forming with any sort of clay (except with kids, but theyre impressed easily! haha) do you have a kiln or use the hob? sorry, got a bit carried away with questions there...................... just so impressed with your stuff - would love to try it!

        i'm guessing (allbeit wildly) is PMC precious metal clay - same sort of thing? ANYONE with knowledge of either of these i'd be very eager to find out more........................!

        sorry for not answering your question jay, hopefully another crafter will be along soon. x

              Hi, I've made a few things with PMC and I liked it once I'd got the hang of it. If you have any specific questions, maybe I could help - I'm not a total expert but if I have an answer, would be pleased to let you know.
