I still remember when I was introduced to the magazine in its first ever sample of the magazine. I was happy to see there will be a magazine fully dedicated to the metal clay community. I was more happy to have met via Facebook Jeannette Froese LeBlanc , she is such a great woman and full of energy.
I admire the hard work she and her husband, Carl LeBlanc, have done to keep the magazine growing.
When I finally met Jeannette during the PMC Conference in Purdue last year, I could totally see her passion for what she does and how much she loves the magazine.
The magazine has a fantastic group of artists that are always helping in putting the magazine together with great articles, projects and wonderful tips, like Margaret Schindel (senior editor) who has done a great job helping with the magazine. The list of helpers is very long and I also THANK YOU all of you for helping keep this great magazine on its feet.
The gallery section is always a pleasure to look at, artists from around the world sent images to be included and it is very nice to see the different styles and ways to use metal clay.
Here are the issues this wonderful team has put together.
I can not wait to see what is coming next!! Every new issue is bigger and full of great information. I am sure you will love to received this great magazine.
Here are some links that you can visit and join the groups.
Happy Birthday Metal Clay Artist Magazine !!!
Thank You Lorena!! Your support and help has been very much appreciated! As you said the list of talented artists helping us continues to grow with each issue. ~JeannetteReplyDelete
Dear Lorena, I already tried silver pmc and I liked the way the pieces looked like. However, I must say that, here in Portugal, its price is huge. I paied, for 16grms, €48,00, versus € 15,00 for the same weight in sterling silver. Of course its much more easier to do some ornaments with pmc. I loved the pieces in the front pages of the Metalclay Artist Magazine you posted. Many kisses.ReplyDelete
Jeannette: I enjoy helping the magazine in any way I can. You all have done a fantastic job and I admire you A LOT !!!ReplyDelete
Maria: Yes, it is expensive!! Here a 16grs PMC3 package goes around 38 dollars.
I am painting the wood box you sent me with your beautiful heart. I will send you a picture when I am finished.
Dear Lorena, I'm sure the box will look nicelly. Those wooden boxes are the containers (here we call the "estojo" )I put my hearts when I sell them and I intent to print on the lid a draw of the heart, in near future. I chose wood because, like clay, is a natural material. Many kissesReplyDelete
Maria: I think the wood box makes a perfect match for your ceramic pieces!!ReplyDelete
I metal embossed a heart, similar to the one you sent me for the top of the box ! ;o)
Kisses and have a great rest of the week my friend!!
