Precious Metal Clay is an amazing product! In the early 1990s, Mitsubishi Metals completely revolutionised the jewellery world by developing this amazing clay which turns into 99.9% pure silver when fired. Over the years it has been improved and adapted so it can be fired with a gas torch (originally it had to be kiln fired), the shrinkage has been reduced and the composition has been altered to provide stronger fired pieces – all resulting in the brilliant, superior products available today. The clay can be moulded, sculpted and formed just like ceramic clay and the product is also available in syringe and paste (or slip) form.
This Precious Metal Clay (PMC) sheet measures 6cm x 6cm and is as flexible and foldable as paper. It can be draped or woven for intricate designs and can even be used for origami! The sheet can be combined with PMC metal clays and can be fired with a gas torch or in a kiln. It contains no water so it doesn't stick to itself or to your fingers like metal clays can and needs no drying time prior to firing. It can be very easily and precisely cut using scissors or a blade or torn for a more organic, ragged edge to meet your design needs. It is also really useful for creating bezels in which to set stones by cutting a strip, forming it into your desired shape and size (taking into account the 12% shrinkage), embedding it into your piece and firing before rubbing the bezel over the stone in the traditional way.
