Metal Clay is a revolutionary new craft material. There are two brands on the market, "PMC" made by Mitsubishi Materials Corporation, and "Art Clay" made by Aida Chemical Industries, both from Japan. It comes in fine silver and gold, bronze, copper and steel. The metal clay feels like fine potter's clay but when objects are fired in a kiln they are transformed into pure precious metal. Almost like magic, but not really - the secret is microscopic particles of silver (or other metals)suspended in an organic binder that burns out to leave solid metal. Once fired you can use traditional metalsmithing techniques, like soldering, enamelling, and so on. The product has been around since about mid-90's, but is still in its infancy. People are still experimenting, and discovering new ways to use it. The metal clays are used by jewellers, potters, beadmakers, enamelists, and miniaturists. There are professional artists and hobbyists, children and adults using the clay. They range from experienced designers to first-time jewellery makers. The fact that the metal comes in a clay form, offers the artist a whole new way to create gold and silver jewellery.
