PMC (Precious Metal Clay®) is a medium in which fine silver particles are suspended in an organic binder. It can be worked much like any other clay. Once it has been dried, it is fired at a high heat. The binder is burned away and the silver particles fuse to each other, so the final product is a piece of fine silver, or .999 silver.  After firing, PMC is like any other metal and can be treated as such. Lisa began with PMC, but now also works with bronze and copper clay, as well as the newest:  PMC Sterling.  Lisa also teaches beginner and intermediate classes in PMC®.  For more information, see her classes page.

The progression of work with PMC, from left to right:  A hand drawn texture; clay in the pre-fired "greenware" state; fired clay just out of the kiln; after tumbling; after antiquing with liver of sulfur.
