I haven't worked with this medium before so I'm looking forward to learning some new techniques, and using some of the fabulous beads and cabochons I've been collecting. The great thing about PMC is you can use it a bit like Playdoh, shaping it however you want. It's then finished in a kiln, which burns away the binding material leaving you with solid metal.
In the meantime I've been sating my craving and getting inspiration with some PMC pieces other people have made.
