Art Attack sets July workshop
Do you enjoy clay? Do you enjoy metal jewelry? Take a class and learn about how they come together.
An introduction to PMC workshop is scheduled from 6:30 to 9 p.m. July 17 and 19 at Sycamore Art Attack, 215 W. Elm St., Sycamore.
PMC is a plastic and versatile material. It can be shaped by hand, folded, molded, extruded and painted on another surface. PMC can be endlessly textured and takes on microscopically fine definition. It can be mixed with ceramic powders and oxides to assume new shades of color and a rougher texture. PMC can be fired with stones and ceramics, it can be glazed and enameled, and it fits a wide range of artistic visions. It compliments but does not displace traditional jewelry methods.
Originating in Japan in 1990, metal clay can be shaped just like any soft clay, by hand or using molds. After drying, the clay can be fired in a variety of ways such as in a kiln, with a handheld gas torch. The binder burns away, leaving the pure metal. Shrinkage of between eight and 30 percent occurs (depending on the product used).
