  • More PMC fun :)

    I've been playing with PMC again
    The prototype of this is in my album (it has no bail as the fixings are at the back)
    I liked the cat idea but wanted it to lay flat when being worn.
    So I made a bail by rolling out PMC and forming it round a drinking straw,
    once it was dry I carved brick shapes into it (hopefully to look like a brick lintel).
    Joined the lot together with PMC slip (pmc bits mixed with water to form paste) & added
    colores resin in sapphire blue...



    I'm quite pleased with the end result but am now thinking I need to learn
    how to make decent hinges (would look coolio as a locket)

    P.S> Has anyone else had a go with PMC or the new bronze clay recently?

        So gorgeous , and very very clever.

        Sadly I don't have the patience to do anything like that but like auntynet I might get some and let my OH work out how best to use it , he is much more a logical thinker than me, I tend to have the attention span of a butterfly !!! ,then he can teach me. ( once he's explained it to me 20 times with me going " I still don't get it !!)

          If anyone fancies a go then Petra has some special offers over at
          silverclay.co.uk (there's a great starter pack for charms pendants).
          + a mixed pack of clays would be useful ~ the tools are pretty similar
          to fimo/sculpy ones so for clayworkers you'd have a head start

          If anyone fancies a go I'd be happy to write a tutorial & take some photos

                wow, that looks great

                I would really like to try PMC but I am scared of the cost, my fimo work is absolutely atrocious, so you can see why I am scared of PMC!

                  That's beautiful My hubby bought me a very basic PMC kit for my birthday and I want to make myself a nice pendant, but I'm not 100% sure what to make yet. Thought of doing a little heart (as it was my birthday pressie from hubby), and add a few semi-precious beads hanging form it somehow.

                  I have a little instruction booklet and it will be a very basic heart just with a little hole at the top for a jumpring to go through, but I keep putting it off. I don't like doing things unless I know exactly how to do it (my downfall that is).

                              Hooray - courses are great as you get to all learn together...
                              I'lll do a tut suitable for torch firing, but if you did want to do a thicker piece then I'd be happy to fire it with my next silver clay ones and post it back (e.g. rings tend to be stronger when fired in a kiln)
