This kit was recently reviewed in Beadwork Magazine. Excerpt from the review is: "If you have always wanted to try working with Precious Metal Clay but are discouraged by the cost of the setup, get a hold of the PMC3 Deluxe Jewelry Clay Kit from Delphi. This kit comes with everything you need to make your very own PMC pieces. I had no PMC experience and quite honestly, was a bit overwhelmed when I started working with the kit. However, I found plenty of instruction and ideas on Delphi's website, and now I feel like a PMC pro!"

  •   super fun!
By on
Pros : Works great. PMC3 is pretty easy to use.
Cons : Lack of instructions
Other Thoughts : I didn't have any big flames or cracks. This is a fun kit for beginners but you should get some tips and pointers before you dive in.

  •   Great starter kit
By on
Pros : Very easy to set up, hot pot is great!
Cons : It doesn't come with a how to work with pmc3 book.. so, do your research. I lost a lot of pmc3 just trying to figure the little things out.
Other Thoughts : All in all this is a good buy. Well worth the money. Just read up on tips on how to handle pmc3 if you don't know already.

  •   Nice intro kit!
By on
Pros : Complete basic tool kit to make jewelry within a couple of hours. Everything you need to try out this exciting craft, including instructions for a matching pendant and earrings set. Within a couple of hours (most of that just playing with modeling clay for ideas) I had a new pendant necklace...great for gifts! You can probably create a unique hand made piece of silver jewelry nearly as fast as going to the store and buying it!
Cons : There were a couple of things listed in the instructions that came with other kits, but nothing that would stop you (e.g. guides to achieve proper thickness of clay, paintbrush). My hot pot did crack on the first fire but the instructions said this is OK. There was a pretty big flame out of this hot pot (6-7" higher than pot). Be very careful where you decide to use it. I will probably only fire this outside in the future. Even if nothing is nearby, it is a bit of a worry.
Other Thoughts : Definitely invest in some modeling clay to play around with first. Remember to cover the plastic patterns with a bit of cooking oil - in fact I think the patterns may not work without doing this (from experience!). The fire screen requires some bending and I ended up getting quite a cut from doing this. It seemed very easy so I didn't think! :) Some utility gloves would be good to wear at that point.

How and when did you get started in glass art? I saw an article about Kristin Frantzen-Orr along with a step by step example of how to do one of her famous floral beads. I talked about it so much my husband bought me a beginning torch set for the following Christmas. Once I got the kiln and the duel fuel torch, I just kept experimenting and growing from there. Kristin is still my idol and I keep telling myself that one day I will do nice, clean floral beads like hers. Your jewelry, vases, plates etc. are all beautiful. I especially love the geologic nature of your Copper Reactive dish, its so unique. Can you tell us a little about how you achieved that look? The base glass is Bullseye Steel Blue Opal (000146) and it reacts all on its own. I used clear stringers and broke up chunks

We tell ourselves not to judge a book by its cover, but the simple truth is, we are attracted to whats attractive. On a recent hunt for a birthday present for my mother, I came across several beautiful handbags in several different boutiques. What ultimately influenced my final purchase decision was the complimentary gift-wrapping offered by one of the storeowners. The handbag itself wasnt any prettier or better quality than the others I was considering, but the packaging was beautiful. Brightly colored tissue, a big sturdy box, quality wrapping paper and an oversized hand-tied bow. No, it wasnt sealed with a kiss, rather a large gold embossed sticker with the boutique name and logo (theres nothing wrong with a little discreet self-promotion). Here are a few tips for better packaging-it might just buy you your next customer. 1. Show your customers what theyll get. The boutique I mentioned earlier had

Delphi merchandiser Kayleigh McGrath recently shared some photos from her early days at Delphi. She was playing around with different colors and textures of glass and learning the hard way that there are limits to what you can do (and cant do) in fusing. The first image shows what happened when Kayleigh layered dichroic glass, coating to coating. The base is 90 COE dichroic rainbow pixi stix on black, (Delphi item 921714) and the top is an old texture we dont carry any more (cyan red radium on clear.) The second image is of a piece Kayleigh loved so much she impatiently removed it from the kiln when it was still too hot (havent we all done this. ) As you can see, it suffered thermal shock. This was made with the same 90 COE pixi stix on black for the base and capped with Delphi item U630090 90 COE
