    I did a course back in Jan of this year & used PMC 1st time I'd used it not bad. Dont know anything about Art Clay but it was used @ the course I went to. Very interesting results. Love the versatility.

    Can anyone tell me if storing a syringe of PMC in a jar of water will do any harm to the PMC?

    Probably best not to mix the brands (PMC & ACS) as the binders are different.
    Yep syringe will work as slip, though you might need to add a bit of water
    Another way of making slip is to get an old film canister, , or other small airtight container and make your own.

    Making Slip:
    Save All your filings and scrapings from dried clay work.
    Add water to make a thick creamy consitency. Voila!! your own slip pot
    As you then add more "dust" pop in a couple of drops of water.

    ** Try to avoid using dust from sand papers as they are normally contaminated by sanding grit (unless you like lumpy slip,lol).
    The material type sanding papers dont seem to do this, so they help keep your slip nice and smooooth!
