Artists who have used other versions of PMC before will find that the gold is slightly denser. This will make it feel a little stiffer, and explains why it will take longer for water to penetrate.
Before using, knead the material while it is still in its plastic wrapping to loosen
the structure. Add small amounts of water to compensate for drying during working, but be conservative. Seal unused material to retain moisture. Finishing is done just like any precious metal, including abrasives, tumbling, hand burnishing, and polishing compounds. PMC Gold can be soldered with any gold solder below 22 karat. As with other metal clays, allow the work to dry, preferably overnight.
