A friend sent me a link to the Polymer Clay Superstore and I was surprised to see this new product called Bake Shop Clay by Sculpey.
I Googled the name and only got that one link to the clay. How odd that Polyform hasn’t tried to get the word out about a new clay.
The retail price is cheaper at $1.29 for 2 oz. I only saw 7 colors and there was no white, yellow or red, so I’d have to guess that they are just out of several colors. I’d sure be interested to hear if anyone out there has heard anything about the clay or has had the chance to use it.
Update* I just got some info from Jenn D. She told me there was some news about this clay in a Yahoo forum after CHA. Judi Weers told everyone “It feels like a cross between Sculpey III and Ultralight. It’s geared toward kids and, therefore, easier for them to condition and use. I got a bunch of samples to experiment with for our guild.” I’ll have to track Judi down and see how their guild liked the Bake Shop Clay.
Update #2* Another person who picked up some of this clay at CHA said is it a kids clay. It is very soft and is not a suitable replacement for artist grade polymer clay like Premo.
