Dip It Fantasy Film resin

Dip it Fantasy film resin has also been known as Whimsey Dip, FormaFilm, Dippity Glass, Joli Glaze, Tauchlach, Vitriflore, Resiflor, and other names.  And is available in the USA at the Clay Alley.     The colors are very concentrated and I have found that using more crystal clear will not only soften the shade but also keep your colored dip it longer.  You can easily double the amount of color by mixing half color with half crystal clear.  

If you need a larger container, you can empty an olive jar.  They are nice and long and once cleaned, can be used for longer petals. 

Will post more tips as I think of them!  So if you remember the making flowers in the 1960's and '70's, then the past is back with Dip It Fantasy Film resin.  Come over to the Clay Alley and check it out.

Preserve Your Memories II is coming to the Clay Alley

So heard about this wonderful new spray called Preserve your memories or PYMii so I placed an order and will have it next week.  It looks so good.  No air bubbles when you spray polymer clay.   You can protect inkjet photos, your own drawings, and card stock buildings or scrapbooking items.  I got both the aerosol and finger pump as you can also spray hemp cording for braclets so they will not smell when they get wet.  So cool.... look for it on my site soon.

SodaStream soda maker

I totally love soda and have decided that all the bad news about diet soda made me look for alternatives.   So after much consideration, I went with  a SodaStream.  Especially when I can locally get a restaurant tank and get the fizz without the $15 refills from a retailer.  How does it taste you would like to know?  Like outta the can soda! I am a root beer gal and the sodastream syrup tastes just like the brand I buy.  The lemon lime is perfect for 7up, and the orange... again fantastic!  So I think I will be using this more and more.  And the syrup is $4.97 at Walmart.  Makes around 50 liters which is more than 100 cans of soda!  You can make one liter at a time, switch it up, make whatever flavor you want.  This is so cool!

Miniature bisque buildings

My neighbor poured several buildings in slip and fired them in the kiln.  She gave me the bisque ones.  I liked them so much that I asked her to pour more!  So now you can also decorate these wonderful old style buildings.  Perfect for 1:144 scale villages.  Or even N scale railroads.

A dear friend, Sandy Bosley,  made this wonderful sculpture using the Fantasy Film sheets to make the wings. totally Awesome!  Beautiful Work Sandy!!

New Sculpting tools coming in

Just found a new one woman company who is making her own sculpting tools.  Based on the samples that I have gotten, they look like they will be a fantastic addition to any sculptors tool box.  Look for a new post when they arrive and I will be taking photos and putting up.  I am starting out with the 2 tools that I think people will use the most, a loop tool and a mini spoon tool  Since the tools have 2 to a handle that amounts to 4 new tools for the sculptor!
