Mixing PMC Sterling with PMC 3 to make the alloy 960


I've had many inquiries about exactly how to mix these two clays, and I thought it might be helpful to post a short video that shows me mixing it.  The video is just over 3 minutes, and that's how long it takes to combine the two!

  1. Celie dear, thanks so much for demonstrating how easy it is to mix 960 Sterling clay and your trick for helping you see whether the two formulas are sufficiently mixed. I'm definitely inspired to try this soon!

  2. Thanks, Celie. This was exactly how I mixed mine. It's in the kiln firing right now!

  3. Hi Celie has anyone experimented with Art Clay Silver and PMC Sterling?

  4. Hi Christy, Someone did some experiments with Art Clay but I can't remember where it's written up. I suggest you try inquiring on the various forums.

  5. Could you use PMC+ instead of PMC3. What is the difference? (I use ArtClay silver) Thank you for sharing!

  6. Yes, you can use PMC Plus. However, if the objective is to make the strongest clay possible that fires in air, you'd want to use PMC3, the strongest type of fine silver clay.

  7. Great little you-tube. Really helps to visually see you mix the two clays.

  8. Hello I would like to ask if I can use PMC3 with PMC pro? and the bags of clay weight are slightly different do I need to make them exactly the same ratio 1:1 before mixing?
    Cant wait to give this a go as fine silver does get more wear and damage.
    Thanks
