I was just wondering if anyone had used this?

If so...do you like it? Does it go far?

Also, I have found a few places online that sell it, but was wondering if you have a preferred supplier?

Thanks,

We got tied up with selling and buying houses at around that time and it all just went into the cupboard :o

Fantastic stuff, very easy to use, you can mould it very easily, stamp into it and all sorts. I used to get mine from Silver Alchemy but they're no longer the disty for it here as they were a bit pants, so the new disty is a place in Amersham http://www.pmc.vpam.co.uk/

If you've got the silver, then you can fire it with a gas torch or in a kiln, but the gold, white gold and platinum require a kiln that's got a temp of 1100 degrees+ (sadly my enamelling kiln only goes upto 900 degrees).

Thanks for that....do the packets go very far?

Or is it the case that a 12-16g pack would make one pendant? obviously depending on the size!!!

Thanks,

It really does depend on the size that you are making and also how thick it's going to be.

Oooh I am being a pain! Sorry!

I am looking to make small tags to brand my Jewellery...so they just need to have my company name on them. Also not too thick due to weight. Probably no bigger than a keyboard button and a few mm thick.

I just need to work out if it is cost effective solution or not...

PMC is expensive and not particularly cost effective for something like that, personally I'd use polymer clay instead.
