Candace Marshall

“I am THRILLED anytime I win something because it rarely happens!  I love Cool Tools products and find that your website is one of the easiest to navigate directly to what I need anytime that I search.

As for me, I have been working with PMC for about three years now and I have an at-home business named Madeljacks (named for my two kids….MADelena and JACKSon) in Baltimore, MD and sell PMC jewelry and embroidered gifts.

My business started as a hobby and grew organically through my community over the last few years.  I am a stay-at-home mom and business owner and wouldn’t have it any other way.

Thank you again for selecting me.  The gift certificate will go to good useJewelry by Candace!!!!

Featuring Magic, Coal, and Coconut carbons, the Sampler Pack has everything you need to fire any creation. Each type of carbon offers something unique and comes in a 1/2lb bag.

 Carbon Sampler PackMagic Carbon

Magic Carbon is a wonderfully versatile carbon. Magic Carbon is pre-tested for all brands of bronze, copper and silver clays and fires any thickness in a 2 hour schedule in most kilns. Magic Carbon has the advantage of firing at a lower temperature. The faster firing and the lower temperature puts less demand on the heating elements, giving your elements a longer life than other carbons. Magic Carbon produces an antique patina on bronze and copper clays, which eliminates the need for additional patination.

Coal Carbon

Our Coal Carbon is a coal-based activated carbon firing media. Coal Carbon is specifically designed for use with bronze and brass clays. This carbon will produce a rainbow patina on fired BRONZclay. The patina is unpredictable, but fairly durable. If undesired, it can be burnished and polished to a high shine. Not for use with copper clays.

Coconut Carbon

Coconut Carbon is a coconut-based activated carbon firing media that is formulated for firing bronze, copper, brass and all other types of metal clays. This carbon will produce a clean, satin finish which is fairly durable. Coconut Carbon can also be polished to a high shine or desired finish.
