I used the Art Clay version of PMC3 It is Art Clay 650. It has a lower firing temperature like the PMC3.
Yes the ruby was man made. They were like $.20 each- so I bought a bunch. I am going to take a ring class ina week or so, I will let you know how it turns out.

I got my starter kit from dickblick.com. I know they sell almost all the varieties.  You can also purchase Art Clay from ArtClayWorld.com.

I gave up on the idea of PMC when I decided I couldn't afford to buy any more equipment.  The idea that it can be torch fired makes me all giddy and ready to jump for joy a little.
Could someone either give me a basic description of how you torch fired your pieces or point me in the direction of a web site that will tell me?

Go to www.firemountaingems.com.  They have a new catalog out in which they are selling Art Clay and all the tools you need to work with it, including butane torches, fire brick to fire the piece on etc.  Although I've never worked with Art Clay (I'm a diehard PMC certified teacher and artist) I hear it's similar to PMC.  You can also go to the PMC Guild website located at www.pmcguild.com and can access other artists, teachers and information about using PMC.

This stuff looks SO cool-- it's silver metal powder mixed with a pliable clay. Form it, fire it in a kiln, and the clay dissolves, leaving you with a piece that's 99.9% silver! FireMountainGems.com seems to have a "beginner" kit (including butane torch for firing) for about $140, but is there any cheaper way for me to try it first? Is it as easy as it looks?
Thanks!

I'm really interested in trying this too! I'm going to the library over the weekend to check out a book on it.
My friend told me I could use my gas oven instead of a torch.
