Polymer Clay Happenings and Lots in Store

We have just started to settle into our new community on Ning, you may notice that some of the pages are still being worked on and built. The chat is not working yet but we are hoping Ning gets that going soon so we can once again start up some live demos and fun interviews. We have a lot in store but it's out of our hands until Ning gets it completely built on their end. Cross your fingers it will all come soon.
On another note we have been finding really cool cutters in our travels and have added several new designs to the shop.
New clay cutters!

48 hour sale!
This week on Polymer Clay TV we demoed some fun ways to use our brand new Kaleidoscope Cutters and you can watch the show at this link. Don't forget to subscribe so you don't miss anything!
**We also have a 48 hour SALE going on now on the Kaleidoscope cutters so get them for a super great price while you can!

Learn new things!
Last week Kira showed you some fun ideas on how to make a really cool bird plaque, you can watch it here.

Got Soft Clay?
One of the things you will start to notice as we get into these summer months is how soft your clay will get, which makes it stick to things. This is never fun but rest assured there are ways to rectify that. You can use a release! You will discover your favorite release but I prefer using some water on the clay and some water on my stamp or cutter and that usually does the trick. Kira prefers to use Armor All, yes the stuff you use on cars. You can also use cornstarch powder, it will show in your finished design so you may need to wash it off. Experiment with these releases to see what works best for you. You can also put your clay in the fridge to cool it down too! I live in northern FL where the last few months we steadily saw temperatures above 90 degrees and I know how frustrating soft clay can be!
We have created an Ultimate Guide to choosing a  clay brand that you can check out to help you decide which brand is right for your project. Here is a link to it.
