Sculpey Design It Templates for Polymer Clay

Sculpey Design It Templates - Polymer Clay TutorVideo #700: In this video, I also show how those rolled cardboard toilet paper centers, might come in handy when baking your clay.

In this video I will show you the new Sculpey Design It Templates for polymer clay.

Basically, these sets are plastic shape templates similar to a stencil, that you can use to cut out consistent shapes out of polymer clay.

The two sets that are currently available, are the Jewelry Shapes set of 40 different designs… and the General Shapes set of 22 shapes.

The jewelry shapes set are suited for jewelry projects and have graduated sizes that can be layered or stacked quite nicely.

The General Shapes Set, has more frames, labels, and motifs such as leaves, hearts, keys, a flower, butterfly and bird… and are well suited for home decor pieces.

Both the positive and negative forms of the design can be used to cut out these shapes from polymer clay. The frosted plastic can be seen through for easy placement on your polymer clay sheets, but won’t get stuck to the clay or leave any flaws on the surface. Nice!

I show different options for cutting out the shapes using an Exacto Knife, a Dental Tool and a Straight Pin. Plus, I show you how a toilet paper roll cut in half, makes the perfect form for baking your cutouts into a curved shapes.

These templates can be found at Michaels, in many other craft stores and online.

    I’m seeing the Kor Tools video on this page instead of the shiny new one :(

  2. Doug Lietz, 28 September, 2015

    Oops… sorry about that. It’s all fixed now!

  3. Jocelyn C, 28 September, 2015

    Thanks Cindy! Another must buy product and love the technique using the rollers.

    Would add one thing. That cardboard absorbs like crazy so beware of leaching. Also, it can stick to a raw clay. I would advise folks to take an extra set and cover your rolls with a piece of parchment paper. Much less sticking, leaching, and you can make the coolest little round boxes with lids that just slide off the roll.

    Salivating for the multi-step tute. Any hints? October or November?

    Edit comment function please! Hope it’s in the new rollout.

    Pretty handy templates to have. Thanks for the video Cindy. I had a carboard tube from some wrapping paper and cut it in different lengths and then cut them in half. I did cover mine with parchment paper like Jocelyn mentioned. Excitement is building for the next tutorial in October and all the changes coming. It sure has been a long dry summer! I think we are all ready for a pick me upper! I just spent all weekend printing out close to another 300 plus color receipes and got them all glued to cards and ready to start mixing again. I also have a request for a tutorial on using and making something with Angelina Fibers. How about it Cindy?

  6. Cindy Lietz, 05 October, 2015

    Thanks Dixie Ann! I have heard of Angelina Fibers but I haven’t seen them sold anywhere. Do they carry them in Michaels? I’ll keep my eye out for them.

    Good old Amazon carries Angelina fibers
    You can often find them on mixed media and felting sites as well

    Cindy, I got mine off an Etsy Store. I have never seen them in Michaels. I am just trying to figure out what to do with them. I know you can bake the fibers with clay.

  9. Cindy Lietz, 07 October, 2015

    They sound cool! I’ll keep my eye out for them.

    The video is very helpful. maybe you can give us some websites to purchase from.

    Hi Deb!

    If you go to eBay or, and place “dental tools” in the search box, you’ll get tons of items to choose from and use on polymer clay.

  12. Cathy Peckens, 02 October, 2015

    If your dentist can’t supply you with tools, here is a site that has craft quality to purchase. Very fast service from this company in the USA

    They also have the best prices on Xuron cutters.

  13. Dixie Ann, 03 October, 2015

    Cathy in MD thanks so much for that link to the dental tools. I had ordered from them before but had forgotten all about them. They had the 6″ cotton swabs I have been looking for forever.

  14. Cindy Lietz, 05 October, 2015

    Cool site Cathy! I have book marked it for the future. Thanks for sharing that with everyone!
