Create a funky, organic silver ring with granulation the stress-free metal clay way. This project is a great way to experience PMC for the first time, and learn a few extra tips and tricks.
Students will Learn:
How manipulate and texture PMC while preparing for shrinkage, and create granulation in a way you can only do with metal clay. After firing, students will patina and polish their ring to wear out of class.
Good hand/eye coordination, ability to work small.
