*Precious Metal Clay (PMC) is an exciting material developed in Japan.  Microscopic particles of silver or bronze are mixed with a moist binder to create a material that has the feel and working properties of modeling clay.  Using simple tools, objects are easily given shape, texture and character.  After air- drying, the objects are heated to temperatures approaching the melting point of the metal, where the particles fuse together to make a dense, fully metallic object.
