Sculpey® offers tools for clayers of all skill levels, along with craft add-ons and inspiring accessories. Our selection is sure to spark new ideas for everything from jewelry to detailed figurines.
Beginner Polymer Clay Tool Kit: Setting up Your Work Area
As a beginner clayer, it's essential to have a starter polymer clay kit that preps you for setting up your work area and preparing your clay. The best place to set up your workplace is anywhere where you have a hard floor, quality lighting and a stable work surface.
With these polymer clay startup supplies, you'll be able to pack and unpack your workspace within minutes:
- A large pencil pot for holding all of your tools and accessories while you are working
- A plastic storage tote with a handle and lid for storing your supplies when you are finished
- A smooth work surface like The Sculpey® Oven-Safe Work Mat. Marble, lucite, hranite, glass, ceramic tile, metal, aluminum foil, and parchment paper are great work surfaces. Clays may stain or damage finished surfaces. Do not place unbaked clay on furniture, flooring, plastic, carpeting or fabric.
