PMC PRO is especially recommend for rings, bangles, bracelets and anywhere delicate and fine tendrils are used, or where the hardness of sterling silver is desired.
PMC PRO offers more working time than fine silver clays and is stronger in the greenware state, making it wonderful for carving.
Any object that can withstand the firing temperatures and times of PMC PRO can be embedded and fired in place, however since the clay must be fired in carbon for at least one hour, glass will need to be set after firing. Some natural gemstones, lab gems and cubic zirconia can be used, as well as porcelain.
PMC PRO must be buried in carbon for at least part of the firing. The firing can be carried out with the articles buried in carbon for the entire duration, or a 2-stage firing can be used. In the 2-stage firing, the first segment is to burn the binders from the clay. The second firing is to sinter the metal.
