If you would like to work with PMC silver clay you have a wide choice of courses to choose from. The most widely used PMC silver clay is PMC 3.
This clay is very easy to work with and has consistent and reliable results. Because PMC 3 can be fired at a lower temperature it can be used with other materials easily including glass and ceramics. It is one of my personal favorites and is perfect for complete beginners and serious metal clay artists.
Other forms of PMC silver include PMC 3 paste, PMC 3 syringe, PMC standard, PMC+, PMC sheet (silver in a paper form) PMC Pro, PMC sterling and PMC gold. They all have different working and firing schedules.
PMC 3 is used in the introductory courses and for a large part of the more advanced courses up to PMC specialist. During the certification programme you will also experience working with materials including PMC gold, glass, semi precious stones, enamels and ceramics. You may choose courses from ½ day, 1 day, up to a total of 9 days. These 9 days can be spread over 3x3 days, fortnightly 3h evening classes, or for those who struggle to get away can complete a distance learning programme and take a 2 day validation course on completion of all the projects. Other courses include special project work and private tuition. If you wish to use other clays at a later stage cross-over courses are available.
