How's it going?

For some time now I can't deny the obvious: it doesn't matter how much costs me to find time, how much effort it takes, I want to keep creating, learning and improving myself with Ooak Craft.

For almost four years I've had the great fortune of counting on the continued support of some people around me that has encouraged me whenever I've needed (boyfriend, father, mother, sisters, friends... thanks!)

If it hadn't been for those encouragement (and some other motivational boost) today I probably woudn't be writing this post... So, I'm pleased to announce that, without leaving my costume jewelry facet, from today I'll create my own precious metal custom pieces :)

What are precious metals?
In my case silver, bronze and copper, at least by the moment!

What material and method will I use to make them?
I'll use PMC or "precious metal clay" in order to make this custom pieces.
PMC is a moldable material containing fine noble metal particles. This amalgam can be modeled and sculpted as if it was clay, and it becomes pure metal when it's fired in a kiln. Imagine the potential of this invention!

What kind of pieces can be modeled?
Any small-medium piece can be modeled, as they're necklaces, rings, earrings, bracelets, belt buckles, cufflinks, circlets, charms, little figures, small plaques...

You may order your custom pieces
writting me to contacto@ooakcraft.es or using this form.

Those artisans interested in knowing more about the Orton's Prometheus PRO-1 PRG kiln (how to program it, how does it work, its efectiveness, its price) or about PMC, just ask me and I'll try to answer your questions ;)
