Price $185.00

No previous experience required

Overview - One Day Workshop:  Precious Metal Clay is for beginning crafters and experienced jewelers. Make a piece of jewellery and learn the basics of PMC3. When formed, dried and fired, you are left with a fine silver object.

Objectives: Learn how to form and texture, cut and dry, and finish your piece of jewellery.

What is PMC?: PMC, precious metal clay is manufactured by Mitsubishi. PMC consists of fine precious metal particles, a man-made binder, and water. It is from ethically mined materials, as well as recycled and reclaimed metals derived from scrap jewellery, cell phones, computers, monitors and industrial waste. It is available in Fine Silver, Bronze, Copper, Steel, Gold and Sterling Silver. PMC3 is the lowest firing temperature version, and is what we will use in this course.

Activities: In this one day workshop you will:

1. Learn about the properties of PMC3. See a demo of how to make your design.

2. Plan, design and make your piece of jewellery and finish it by the end of the day to wear home.

3. Learn torch firing, and discuss kiln firing

Adaptations: You will have use of stamps, molds, cutouts, and tools to be able to spark your creativity. You may want to bring botanicals to use to press into the clay for your own personal design.

Class Tips: The class is a one-day workshop. Think about what designs you would like to put on your piece. What do you want to make - earrings, a pendant, several charms or buttons? Bring your ideas, your lunch and if you have your own tools you are welcome to bring them as well.

Intro to PMC and DIY Projects

$189.00

This is a class for both new PMC artisans and those who have worked with PMC but have a certain project that they may need some guidance on.  I will review the basics, forming or rolling out the clay, molds and shapes, and also the firing and finishing techniques including the torch firing method.  You will have enough silver to make a pendant and pair of earrings.  Some students would like having access to my help so lets have some fun with this.

Suggestions for the class: if you have botanicals or items you want to use for designs bring them.  If you want to make a mold of something, you can buy the mold material at class and we can make the mold and make a piece in the same day.  If you want more than 16 grams of PMC3 (included in the class price) let us know by October 1, so we can have enough in stock. If you have PMC3 left over from our other classes, be sure to re hydrate it before class, then you can use it for your DIY project. You can email me with questions prior to the class at Liz@CoveCoast.com.

 Bring your ideas, your sketches and your creativity. 

Nothing to Buy Before Class!

Use of all hand and studio tools and equipment as well as the materials needed to make Hollow Form Beads are included in the class price.  

Precious Metal Clay is a fabulously creative material developed in the early 1990’s in Japan.   PMC consists of microscopic particles of pure silver powder and a water-soluble, non-toxic, organic binder that burns off during firing.  When fired, the organic compound is burned off, leaving 99.9% fine silver.
