Silver 950 and 960 Video Tutorials and Information

On this page you’ll find information and video tutorials about the hybrid clay mixes which includes silver 950 and 960 blends.

PMC Sterling Clay was launched in 2011. Many people are using the so-called 960 blend of half PMC Sterling, half fine silver metal clay (PMC3 or Art Clay Silver) to make a strong clay that can be fired on an open shelf in the kiln. In June 2016, Bill Struve introduced his own blend of clay called EZ960 through Cool Tools. Metal Clay Ltd in the UK also announced that there will be an Art Clay Sterling clay available from September 2016 called Art Clay Silver 950.

Silver 950 and 960 blends of metal clay are a great addition to the metal clay choices you have.
