Fine Silver Clay Techniques

Enrich your jewelry design experience with Precious Metal Clay. This wonderfully malleable material, consisting of fine silver particles suspended in an organic binder and water, can be formed like earthen clay and, when fired in a kiln, fuses or "sinters" together to become a .999 pure silver object. In this course students explore PMC techniques while making bead caps and cones, setting lab-grown gemstones and dichroic glass cabachons, creating hollow beads, and moldmaking. Due to time restraints, pieces completed in class may be fired at the instructors studio and returned for finishing by the student.

Prerequisite: None (Recommended: XJWL3018 Introduction to Precious Metal Clay: A One-Day Program)

First class materials: $200 lab fee payable to instructor - $100 due at the first class meeting, the balance can be paid in installments (ask instructor). Includes PMC clay for all projects, and 3 faceted lab grown gemstone, diehroic glass, ceramic shard and bisque bead. Syringes, paste and paper clay will also be available for use and a loaner tool kit is provided. Additional clay products may be purchased as desired.

Bring snack, water, and eye magnification.
