I've been wanting to play with PMC for a while now, and last weekend was my chance!  There was a class held not 2 miles from my house, so no excuses.

At first, I was amazed at how small the packet of clay I received was, but the material went surprisingly far.  I ended up making 6 charms/pendants and still have some left for another project.  Plus, I learned that none of the PMC ever goes to waste - keep it all for slip! 

I was bitten by the bug -- like I need another crafty hobby to spend all my $ on.   Wink

Here's the first project I made, a pendant.

I'm not mcorwin, but if you want to read about PMC (Precious Metal Clay) and other brands of "metal clay," look on this page:
http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/Characteristics.htm
(...click on "Metal Clays" in the list at the top of the page...)

The bottom line though is that they become 99% silver after firing at a high temp (in a kiln --though some versions can be butane torch-cured at somewhat lower temps)
