ICE Resin

New for Shades of Clay

We now stock ICE Resin in the convenient 1oz size.

This 1 oz size is especially perfect if you are just starting to explore with ICE Resin.
The possibilities are endless with this stuff as you might well imagine!

I wish I had some examples from my own work as I'm just itching to play with this stuff some more. Unfortunately, my time in the studio is limited these days.  Baked bezels of polymer clay using the CaBezel molds are the perfect place to use this stuff.
Do any of you have some examples to share using the combination of baked bezels and ICE Resin?  Please share if you do.

New images from Helen Breil

I know that Helen Breil has a lot of fans out there!

I'm happy to say that I've received a few new images using her brand new texture stamp designs.

Can you believe that both pendants are made  using the same texture?  "Manic Monday"

Christmas Penguin Tutorial

I came across this lovely little penguin tutorial today.
 Crystal Ikeda uses Sculpey for these little guys but you can use your favorite clay whether it's Kato, Premo or Sculpey.
