Remember, Art Clay Silver is not PMC. It is another brand and you
should refer to it as such. There are many books, videos and project
sheets on how to use Paste type. Paste can be put over any organic
form. In addition to leaves, you can use pods, dried potpourri. You
can also use products like cork clay or wood clay as cores and by
layering paste on that, you can kiln fire it and create a hollow
form. Paste type is also used as a connector of pieces of clay type
to clay type. You can go to the Art Clay World website at
artclayworld.com, and our tips and techniques page should guide you,
as well as offering you videos and books to help you. My book, “Metal
Clay: The Complete Guide” is a great way to get into metal clay.
