Sculpey Tool Organizer Review and Special Guest

Sculpey Tool OrganizerVideo #538: Polymer Clay Tutor Member Bertha Adamson sat in on this product demo session. She’s from Aurora, Colorado.

Topics Covered In This Video:

  • In the studio with PcT Member Bertha Adamson, from Aurora Colorado, USA.
  • Bertha was in the Vancouver area for a conference, and asked if it would be possible to come by for a visit. Doug and I available so it worked out for Bertha to swing by for a couple hours before heading out to the airport to fly home again.
  • In a previous video I showed a bunch of new products from Polyform, and one product you guys asked me to show in more detail was the Sculpey Tool Organizer.
  • It is a product that I initially thought was kind of neat, but then was even more impressed when I put my tools into it.
  • Assembly the tool organizer is a snap.
  • Both Bertha and I were surprised by how many tools the organizer actually does hold.
  • It’s a much better way to store sharp tools than putting them in a drawer.
  • Sculpey Tool organizer holds tools like, acrylic roller, texture sheets, style and detail tools, pearl and etch tools, drills, bead reamers, mandrels, clay texture rollers and wheels, acrylic plate, Exacto Knife and Blades, Clay Blades, palette knife, awls, piercing tools, and so much more!

    Oh, how lucky you are Bertha! I have family in CO maybe next time I come out I can meet up with you! I’m really thinking this tool caddy is what I could use! Small but holds a lot. Just a sneak preview for you Cindy, my hubby and I are planning an Alaskan Cruise next year!!! Soooooo, I might be able to sneak a few moments to stop by and meet you!! I will let you know the dates we will be sailing soon.

    I would love for you to visit us Catalina! Do let us know when you will be in town and hopefully we can get together when you’re here!

    Hi, Catalina! I would love to meet up with you on your next visit to Colorado. (If you can make it the fourth Saturday maybe you could come to the Polymer Guild meeting and meet a lot of friendly and talented clayers!)

    And make sure you include at least a couple of days in Vancouver as part of your cruise plans. (An afternoon is not enough – I could easily spend another week there.) The convention center and my hotel are right where the cruise ships dock and was I ever envious of all the people heading off to see the glory of Alaska.

    I don’t have enough tools to really benefit from this tool caddy…yet! Down the line, I’m sure it will be something that I will want.

    It was fun to see Bertha!!

  5. Bertha A., 09 July, 2014

    Hi Jill, Thanks, it was fun to participate in it! ;-)

    HI Cindy! I must admit that as thrilled as I am to be in one of your videos I got a strong case of the bashfuls when I saw it was uploaded. It’s why I try to be behind the camera rather than in front of it. :-)

    So I didn’t watch right away, but I enjoyed it once I did, and it reminded me how much I enjoyed our visit. And makes me appreciate even more what you do for us every week and month!

    I can hardly believe almost a month has passed since my visit. (I can hardly believe it’s already July – where has 2014 gone?) I have been meaning to send you a little token of Colorado but I have discovered that mailing anything more than a letter to Canada from the USA is not as simple as you might think. Hopefully I will get it sent off this weekend.

    Hi again Bertha, You are just the sweetest thing! We shoot so many videos that sometimes I forget that some people may be shy about seeing themselves on camera. Glad you got the courage to watch it. You did great! I too enjoyed your visit and I am really looking forward to seeing your token of Colorado! :)

    Oh, someone asked you a question over on YouTube. If you go to the video above and click the little YouTube icon at the bottom of the video player you can go directly there to answer it.

    So glad this was as fun for you as it was for me!

    I have heard people recommend Minwax Water Based Polyacrylic Gloss or Varathane Water Based Gloss. Not sure which is better. Could you do an objective comparison of the two. Which is thicker, shinier, tougher and any other qualities you can think of. Really enjoy your videos and product tests.

    Thank -Liz Rees

    Its Sitara from India… I have a doubt to clear…

    See, when I condition gold or 18K gold polyclay, I get some brownish shading intermittently and when I roll them into balls, I am not getting an even gold color all over…. Why is it so and how can I get rid of that? I have seen some people using gold color paints over it after baking. Is it good and if so, what type of paint to use?….acrylic?

    Please help

  10. Cindy Lietz, 13 August, 2014

    Hi Sitara, those streaks you see in the clay are the mica particles that are all ‘mixed up’ in the clay. When the metallic clays are rolled through the pasta machine, the particles line up and look shiny from the top and dark from the sides. So when you try and roll a ball of it, you get some of the top and some of the sides mixed in. It is pretty tricky to make a ball without this happening. You can pain with acrylics if you wish.

    Hi Cindy,

    A great thanx to you 4 the reply. Yes I was thinking about painting with acrylics, but do I need to coat it with a sealer varnish for protection? What about other normal beads?Do I need to cover them too?

  12. Cindy Lietz, 14 August, 2014

    Hi Sitara, no need to use a sealer with acrylic pain, unless you want to. it sticks very well to the polymer clay as well as other beads, as long as you use a good quality paint.

  13. Sitara C, 15 August, 2014

    Cindy, just one more thing in this regard….In my area Varathane is not available…Instead of that, can I use Mod podge as a sealer cum finish after waxing? And it comes in a variety of finishes right? Any reactions for mod podge on PC? And can I use any water based sealer for finishing?
