Lately I have had lots and lots of creative ideas for ways to use jewelry making, polymer clay and other crafting supplies.

This has resulted in an interesting variety of purchases.

You get to preview all of these recent purchases, and I’ll give you an idea of what I think I’m going to do with them.

What I do with them, of course, is subject to change without notice, but it’s sure to be fun and creative!

Ordering products from has come up several times in conversations with other polymer clay artists. But, I will admit to being a little slow to catch on sometimes, lol.

I finally got around to placing an order with them, and wow, they have such an array of interesting products to choose from… it was hard to stop shopping.

In fact, I already know many of the things I’m going to get next time!

This order started because I needed some Pardo translucent clay and one of my YouTube viewers mentioned that it was at an excellent price at PolyClayPlay. Actually, it was less than half the price of Amazon.

Once I was on the site I looked at everything. There were so many intriguing products, I had a hard time keeping my order to a reasonable size. (At $122, dunno that I succeeded there. <bg>)

I hope this video will spark some ideas and fire up your creative imagination for ways to use supplies that you might not have thought of using with polymer clay.

As I’ve mentioned several times on this blog, for the past two years I have been part of the Polymer Clay Adventure which is an online art retreat in which you pay a single fee for classes that will last you an entire year.

I’ve shared a lot about my experiences and even based many of my 2015 dragons in my Dragon Challenge on the techniques learned in the classes.

Sometimes it’s fun, though, just to do the projects as taught, rather than trying something new and different. It can be a bit of a mental break just to follow the directions and do exactly what the teacher teaches. So this year with that in mind I decided to purchase their supplemental supplies. These are specific things called for in the classes by the teachers that might be difficult to find elsewhere. It’s also a good bargain, another plus in my opinion. 🙂

By the way, after recording this video I looked at the enclosed paper more carefully and found they tell us which class each supply is for. Yeah, I was wrong about the ring, but I’m looking forward to doing that project in Lisa Loria’s class!

So that’s what this video is, showing the supplies that I received in the polymer clay surprise package. And, of course, speculating a bit about what the classes will be.

Here are the links I could find for these supplies:

ff studio tour tool storage

Today in part 4 of my studio tour I show how I organize most of my tools & supplies for working with polymer clay. I’ve been really pleased with this organizer as it keeps everything I use most often within quick reach.

You can find the foam core in white or in black if you’d like to make something similar for your tools.

Here are some of the tools & supplies I use frequently:
