PMC 3 - Silver Metal Clay

Kiln Fire: 1650°F / 899°C - 2 hours (optimal)
Shrinkage: 10-15%

PMC has a finer, smoother composition that’s easy to work with and manipulate. You can also embed findings with confidence--firing at a low temperature means they won’t be heat-damaged. PMC3 is suitable for torch-firing as well as kiln-firing.

The kiln firing time can be as little as 10 minutes. See firing details below.
