How to use Fire in Place Components:
1)Press into PMC3 clay or use PMC3 syringe or paste to attache to your PMC3 creations.
2)Fire to 1300F Max temp for 35 minutes
3)Quench or crash cool pieces (depending on whether or not a stone is included in the piec (do not quench stones ever)
4)You may also wnt to heat harden the metal after firing it by placing it back in the kiln and heating it to 572F for one hour to age or heat harden the metal again since it is now annealed. If you are going to work harden the piece, many find this step unnecessary (except with earring posts).
Tumble, brush or hand burnish as desired.
