4 min read

What home products we can take to our studio?

Cleansing things, cleanliness and makeup

dishes scotch pads – These are ideals for texture, you can use them in all forms of shapes, measurements, thickness, and they are amazing. A idea I realized from the wonderful Nan Roche, is to keep your sanding paper on prime of a scotch pad, this way the sanding paper is currently being held by the gentle pad and your hand & fingers get a much a lot more comfortable assist.

child wipes – cleansing and a lot more cleaning! cleanse you clay, your palms, your floor, your pasta equipment, these wipes are pretty helpful.

ground polish – though i do not use ground polish as a finish to my function, “Long term” Floor Polish is a excellent case in point of this. Some people today like to dip their beads in ending liquids, or you can use a brush and use handful of layers until finally you get the effect you want. This substance is an different to gloss and lacquer.

Tooth brush – an additional texturing resource (and cleans as effectively!)

Make-up brushes – I have a retail store nearby that sells low-priced makeup brushes that are smooth and awesome, acceptable for applying paint, lacquar, gloss or resin.

Make-up powders – all those are wonderful as metallic/matt effects on stamped clay, i use to be a make-up artist and have tons of those people powders, they are great for clay and can be a amazing substitute to the mica powders (see image).

Lotion – a excellent product we can use with very dry clay, just add a small amount of lotion to your dry clay and retain conditioning it, it allows softening the substance.

Manicure sponges – the manicure sponges have 2 key uses – 1st is for sanding in medium-coarse grit and 2nd is texturing.

Manicure stickers – nails stickers are a great decoration for fixed polymer clay designs – bouquets, butterflies, dots, and so on. Really don’t overcome them, the plastic in them won’t survive the heat of the oven. similar with plastic rhinestones.

Stylus – this resource is wonderful, making these sweet dots on your clay whether or not it is treated or uncooked, i enjoy “dotting” my clay, you can also use acrylic paints to incorporate dots right after cure.

Vaseline or other Petroleum Jelly – similar use as lotion.

Talcum – incredibly handy launch agent, brush your stamps, texture sheets for straightforward releasing. you can also use cornflower for the very same goal. Be cautious not to inhale talcum, it really is not wholesome.

Dental Clinic
Syringe – although this resource is not a thing i want to meet up with in genuine existence, it is terrific for measuring product, especially when functioning with resin which has to be weighted carefully. i know some folks use them as extruders, but i haven’t consider that:)

Dental applications for sculpturing – these tools are fantastic for sculpturing and miniatures. if you are into those people subjects – it can be a should have.

Molding resources – haven’t test those possibly but i read from 1 of my learners which is a dentist that the dental mould is effective wonderful for polymer clay as effectively.

Carpentry, Construction
Sanding paper – sanding paper in all types of grits are welcome in our studio – coarse? use it for texture. fantastic? use it for sanding. they are pleasurable to use, low-priced and make a attractive end on your back items.

Lathe machines – Under no circumstances used those but i observed the magic performed with them by grant diffendaffer.

Resource packing containers – working tools for your DH? no, they can be a great storage box for US! i have tons of boxes from the hardware retail outlet utilised to retailer my canes, applications, cutters etc!

Ceramic tiles – take all the leftovers from your home renovation (or request the neighbor for some tiles) and use them as operating area. they are cleaned effortlessly and can be cured in the oven.

Mesh – this is one particular of my favorites! steel mesh can be treated so it can be utilized as an addition to our clay types, as armature and quite a few other employs.

Screws/Nails and so on – steam punk design and style? these oven proof equipment and products are a neat decoration for your operate. they are also helpful for texturing, piercing, and just for fun.

Pliers – it was meant to be the other way all-around but i normally obtain MY pliers at my DH resource box! these equipment are a should for wire perform, jewellery earning and any studio requires a pair of these.

Silicone Gun – typically utilised as an assistant to older polymer clay extruders (scroll down on this web page) if you you should not have the green Makin’s extruder, you may possibly want to use the silicone extruder as an help.

Get pleasure from!
