PMC – creative clay in a mould of its own.
Precious Metal Clay (PMC) is proving to be not just a simple way of creating jewellery, but one that offers ample opportunity for being even more inventive for all levels of skill and experience. Once moulded, the organic clay-like binder can be fired away to leave behind a pure, hallmarkable piece of jewellery.
Cooksons have sourced one of the latest and best versions of PMC in production, in both 99.9% Silver and 22k Gold. It has lower shrinkage and higher durability, plus improved firing times, allowing the two metals to be combined and fired together. It is available as lump clay, syringe, and paste versions.
Convenient starter kits
The 32-page A5 brochure also features tools, equipment and books to help users with these great ranges, along with superb starter kits for novices to PMC and a bench tool starter pack for working silver.
