I am dabbling into a new hobby and I am pretty excited about it. It’s molding using polymer clay. I joined a workshop late last year and I am eternally grateful to my husband for letting me indulge. He has always been very supportive of me, that’s for sure. Anyway, as I have been researching and reading about the craft, I learned that there are lots of techniques and tips that I can try. Moreover, there are many supplies and tools out there that I can use to create unique and personalized things. Just last night, prior to sleeping, I spent some hours browsing online shops and ordering some tools. This morning, upon checking my email, I learned that one of my orders is already shipped! Yay! Got to admire the efficiency of that online seller but I will send my feedback and rate the store once I receive my item. I hope that the post offices that send and receive my package are good when it comes to material handling so that it will arrive in good condition.
This morning, I also visited the market for food. Upon going home, I chanced upon some shops that sell novelty items. I checked them out and went home with three items which I hope to use for my craft. That’s one thing about playing with clays. One has to be ingenious and resourceful to build her tools and supplies as the ones specifically made for the craft are really expensive.
My motto when it comes to supplies and tools for polymer clay molding? “You buy some and you build some.”
