    Default polymer and pmc

    How would you affix the polymer to the fired pmc? I can't see how you'd manage to do that... apart from maybe appoxy...
    Any ideas?

    I attach little silver balls at the back of the piece The polymer is pushed overthe balls and as it shrinks in the oven it makes a mechanical bond....(you can also glue it)

    I was thinking in terms of rivets - I quite like the look of those and they would suit the idea I have in mind

    If you do PMC you ought to try real enamel as it works so well and transparent enamels are really clear and bright. I think some people are nervous of enamel but there's no need to be, particularly on PMC. You don't even need a kiln as torch firing is just as good. I think it's much easier to use than resin which runs all over the place.
