Tips & Tricks - Simply Pressed Clay

Remember plasticine as a kid and I think a lot of us had our Fimo phase. I remember working with my Mum when she made bead necklaces with Fimo.

I've also tried air dry clay in the past but it always seemed too dry & never that easy to work with and the ones that were easy to work with always needed to go in the oven to dry.  There was one memorable occasion when I messed up Farenheit and Celsius and yuck burning clay does not smell good. 

Received as a Swap from Shirley Fisher.

So I am back in my plasticine phase with the Stampin' Up!® Simply Pressed Clay, it's so therapeutic to smoosh between your fingers and I'm loving how easy it is to get out of the moulds. I've made up a lot of flowers and a few buttons now so I don't have to wait 24 hours for them to dry.

If you've got the Simply Pressed Clay or want to find out a bit more about it before you buy it have a look at the video  featuring Bonnie Thurber from the Stampin' Up!® Home Office.

Bonnie mentioned popping the clay in it's mould in the freezer for a few minutes for the buttons.  I find it helpful if I do this for the blossoms as well.
