Polyform has a new line of products for 2014 !

I am totally drooling over some of the new products in the Polyform 2014 product line !

 

On my wish list are the 2 silicone molds – you can bake with your clay in them ! One has cabochons, while the other has matching bezels. I know, right !! How cool is that?

 

Also the Hollow Bead Maker has different size domes to create different shaped beads.

 

The Silkscreen Kit also look like fun 🙂

 

Plus there are 4 new  graduated shape cutter sets, a Bead Maker the creates 3 different round beads – 13mm, 16mm, 18mm – with a measuring tool so you always have uniform size beads and a Bead Making Kit with all the tools you need. Oh, and they have a new sandpaper kit.

 

I saved the most interesting one for last. 🙂 There is a new clay called Souflle. It is light weight, but very strong. This quote is from the web site – “Experience a different kind of polymer clay.  Souffle is an innovative lightweight clay perfect for jewelry making! Its strength and ability to hold detail makes it an excellent clay for advanced techniques such as mokume gane, bargello and caning.   It is strong and self supporting and doesn’t crack in large pieces which makes it great for larger clay projects as well.  Beautiful suede finish when baked.  Comes in 22 fashion forward colors.”  I hope it makes it onto the nearest Michael’s craft store shelves soon, because I an just dying to try it !!!!

There is a great blog post about Souffle here that you can read. http://thebluebottletree.com/sculpey-souffle-introduction/

Another Helpful Tip from Parole de Pate

This is one I just have to try ! Take a strip of craft metal (she used Art Emboss by Amaco, but I already have some aluminum flashing) and bend it into a shape and embedded the metal into clay and bake it to make a cookie cutter !!! I imagine you will have to glue the metal into the clay since clay won’t attach itself to metal without glue 🙂
