What advice would you give someone starting this project? work with polymer clay first know exactly what you would like to do before you get PMC out. Use olive oil on all surfaces to keep from sticking!

Hi Sudha, this is beautiful! You have made a really nice deep impression, it gives such a rich and luxurious look to your medallion. I love the combo of the garnets and pearls, too. I'm glad you enjoy the PMC, I look forward to seeing your forthcoming projects! :D

Thanks Jenny! I think your course was very helpful and gave me a systematic and safe way to do metal clay,,,I havent even finished the course and I'm looking forward to learning more techniques,,, Craftsy courses are what I've been looking for a long time. Lots of techniques and great access to instructors...by the way do you primarily use torch or do you kiln fire too?

10/01/2012 Flag

I use the kiln now for most of my firing...once you get a kiln, it beats standing there with the torch. But I started out with the torch, becuase there are few ways to have so much fun with jewelry for less than 50 dollars! There is a new free class on Craftsy about using the torch, I highly recommend signing up for it too. You will like the ability to solder your pieces as you work more with the metal clay.
