How can I become a supplier of metal clay?
Both Mitsubishi (PMC) and Aida (Art Clay) have a policy of controlling the number of distributors in each country. The only way anyone can supply Art Clay or PMC is to buy it wholesale from one of the distributors and resell it. Most of the distributors will allow you to set up a wholesale account with varying amounts of discount. These accounts normally have a minimum monthly spend you have to commit to in order to get the discount.

If you are based in a country without a distributor, you should approach the manufacturer directly to become a distributor.

Check out the suppliers pages on the Metal Clay Academy website for the authorized distributor in each country.
