With Precious Metal Clay Flex silver clay you can mould, sculpt and form it just like PMC3 but with the flex packs, you now have the luxury of taking time over designing your piece as the flex silver clay stays pliable for a much longer period of time- weeks if need be! NB You won't be able to ball-up and re-roll the clay; to do that, you'll need to rehydrate the clay and begin again. This is perfect for beginners new to working with PMC  or for students as it gives you the flexibility to take your time over getting your pieces perfect ready to fire. This amazing Precious Metal Clay can be moulded, sculpted and formed just like modelling clay and can be fired, in most cases, with a gas torch (alternatively in a kiln). Once fired the clay turns into 99.9% pure silver which is hallmarkable and even purer than sterling silver! 

Your imagination is probably the most important tool you will need for using Precious Metal Clay. Using some basic modelling skills (think of playdough and plasticine) and a few tools, you will be amazed at the high class and professional-looking results you can achieve using this clay. It can be shaped into solid or hollow forms, coiled, made into wire for filigree designs, or rolled out flat and it is especially good at picking up textures. It is also perfect for using with moulding compound to create the very popular fingerprint jewellery. Small pieces can easily be fired using a hand-held gas torch and larger or multiple pieces can be fired in a kiln. It shrinks by approximately 15% when fired but this small amount of shrinkage makes textures and detail appear even more intricate. Don't be afraid to experiment as any dry, unfired pieces which you are not happy with can be reconstituted back into clay and used again.
