ABOUT SILVER PRECIOUS METAL CLAY:
PMC /ArtClay silver is a recycled product that consists of fine silver particles suspended in an organic binder. The clay is workable like other forms of clay and can be sculpted to almost any shape you desire. After drying the product is fired at an extremely high temperature, either by kiln or torch. The binder burns away and the silver sinters together, resulting in a pure silver (.999) piece.
