Is there any such thing as Platinum Metal Clay?

This is a response from Tim McCreight to a question about Platinum
metal clay on the Ganoksin website.


"It is true that for a short time, Mitsubishi Materials made PMC
in platinum. They have discontinued this product, mostly, I think,
because of the extremely high firing temperatures required to sinter
the clay. A possible alternative is for this person to make her ring
in silver PMC, then have it molded and cast in platinum.
