PearlEx on Pure Silver - Precious Metal Clay
  • Has anyone ever used PearlEx on pure silver? I have several fired pieces of PMC and was wondering how to adhere PearlEx to these pieces. I've read that I can fire PearlEx at a low temperature of 600 degrees - which is possible with my finished silver pieces. Do I just add PearlEx in the area that I want it and then fire it?
  • Hi,

    I have not tried this but understand that PM clay has silver or gold powder mixed into the polymer. The idea is that the polymer fires off leaving the melted silver or other precious metals. If that is in fact the case I would assume the Pearl-ex will have nothing to adhere it to the metal as all of the polymer will be gone after firing.
