This workshop uses PMC paste to create detailed botanical images that can be applied to a sterling silver frame. You will learn the techniques to create delicacy in your work that looks like you sculpted it with precision details. Once completed, the pieces will be fired with a torch. Join us and explore the many options available through this medium. You will be amazed at the endless options and ease for embellishing your work.
You will leave with a finished pendant in sterling silver. Toyoko, a licensed PMC Instructor, will address what to look for when creating the delicate imagery and detail to your work.
