PMC clay and other


#1

All, in the new Rio Grande catalog, note the latest PMC gear (they
don’t supply the other clay) and you’ll see the special torch for
curing. It doesn’t seem logical that using one would produce the
same effect that a lengthy bake, in stages, in a kiln, cushioned in
alumina, would do. But, I’m no expert - just interested in the
stuff enough to see possibilities. Pat

Pat, I would suggest that you take your torch and try firing small
(very tiny) pieces of PMC + (for 5 minutes, I hear) and then decide
if this is something that you really want to do. I would assume it
is a waste of gas because the results would not be predictable.
(I’m going to try some, one of these days though . . .) Have fun!

No. 10 minutes at least. And use PMC plus, not PMC standard. I fired
a piece over a stationary gas burner with the piece looking pink the
whole time - not a big deal to do - and sawers it in half as a test
to see what it looked like inside. Nice solid 999 silver.
