PMC+ Technical Information

 PMC+ sheet/paper is a thin, flexible sheet that allows you to create folded forms, onlays, weave or decorate the surface of PMC clay. After firing, it comes out of your kiln as a pure fine-silver object. Each sheet has a thickness of .01"(0.25mm) (30 ga) before firing and is about .009" (0.23mm) thick after firing.

PMC+ shrinks less and has a stronger molecular bond than original formula PMC®. It fires at a lower temperature, allowing you to combine sterling findings with your PMC+ before firing. PMC+ is suitable for torch-firing as well as kiln-firing.

Create jewelry, beads, components—anything you can do with clay, you can do with PMC®!
