Working with Metal Clay - Syringe Rings
Precious Metal Clay is made up of an organic binder and clay which when fired (either by torch or kiln) turns into 99.9% silver. PMC is available in lump clay form, as a syringe or in a paper form.
For the purposes of the video below, I have used both a syringe to make a ring and some of the lump clay to make a pendant both with semi-precious gemstones, namely a moonstone and blue zircon.
The video below shows the 'greenware' state of the clay before it is fired in the kiln. I will post another video which will show you the results of firing the pieces in the next blog post Part Two - so please keep following.
