Here’s the situation… you’ve just made a beautiful pair of Sweet Pea Earrings or a few lovely pendants that have been cut out from a Teardrop Color Blend sheet… only to leave behind a long strip of blend with big gaping holes in it!
Well instead of balling up all that holey clay and adding it to your growing scrap pile, why not salvage the blend to save for another day?
In this quick little video, I’ll show you how to save and re-blend those cut up color gradient sheets… plus how to store them in a handy presentation binder for future use.
Like I mentioned in the video, the binder storage idea was one I learned from fellow polymer clay artist Carolyn Good of 2GoodClayMates. I don’t know if she was the first to come up with the idea, but it’s a good one!
Hopefully you found these tips handy for saving your blends from the scrap pile heap. Do you have any other cool scrap saving ideas? Please do share them (or any other polymer clay tips), in the comment section below!
