How to make a PMC ring

MetalClays Seamless Ring Molds

1. Takes only few minutes to make.
2. Hands down the strongest way to make ring.
3. Reliable results everytime.
4. Perfect shape everytime.

We are proud to introduce this new product from our studio. While there is lots of ways to make a ring one of the common problem remains how to close and the strength of the seam. This new product eliminates the seam entirely. It takes a few minutes to make and is a great platform to create on knowing each time the band will come out the right size and perfectly round. In fact you can resize up one entire size without concern if it will break. This system will be applied to many different band styles in the coming months.

The molds are made of high strength thermo plastic. Just use your usual balm or lubricant to keep clay from sticking. Molds are can safely be used on hot plate. 

We would really love to hear from you as to what you would like to see in terms of base styles. We plan to list on site for sale by end of October. Register users will be given substantial discount off list prices for first 2 weeks of official launch.

Please view video for full demonstration of making a metal clay ring band. The ring in video is 5mm wide X 2mm thick size 7 but is available in all sizes.

We are considering everything to be honest. As artists the sky is the limit. As a business we are trying to take baby steps and put out a practical and functional product. For what it worth everyone we currently have 3 machines cutting variations everyday and testing each one daily trying to find the perfect recipe. Thanks all for the encouraging input and excitement.

To give everyone an update. We have currently settled on a final design. Initially the ring mold in the video worked great for size(band width)that we were making. As we tested against wider bands we discovered issues. Fortunately the new design not only resolves this problem but actually makes the entire process even easier and faster than in the video. We are running last tests tomorrow and will begin fabrication of all sizes in coming days.

Okay we are running a little behind. We had some problems with labeling bleeding. So our first run was rejects. We are currently correcting problem and hope to have new run done in next few weeks.
