Polymer Clay Essentials Starter Kit

$ 29.95

This polymer clay starter kit includes everything you would need to try polymer clay: acrylic roller, flexible tissue blade, clear acrylic sheet for a small work surface or in aiding cane reduction, one 2 ounce block of Kato black polymer clay to use for cane backgrounds, and 3 random polymer clay cane samples (you can request specific canes while supplies last) handcrafted by Tina Wissen.

There are many other tools you can eventually purchase, but initially, this is all you need to get started.  Pen kits or replacement tubes and the related bushings will need to be purchased separately to allow for user flexibility. To begin with, your house oven is safely adequate for baking until you know for sure you like working with polymer clay, but you may want to purchase the toaster oven of your choice. We recommend getting an oven thermometer and ceramic tile or aluminum foil baking tray to use just for polymer clay.  We hang our clay tubes on bamboo sticks to allow for even baking, and recommend covering with foil to prevent burning.  You can also use a piece of wire to create a homemade stand as demonstrated by Donovan Haney (see blue swirl closed end pen blank photo).

Please visit our tutorials for more information.  We have posted the PowerPoint demonstration used for the event as a resource of information and hyperlinks to several supporting videos on each specific topic of interest.
