You’re not going to believe what they called this turtle

This week – we have a new selection of stamps for you – the ImpressArt stamps are top quality and one of our most popular products. You tell us you love these stamps – and we agree! They are made from hardened carbon tool steel, precision cut for crisp impressions, and designed to last! You can stamp them on metals from aluminum to copper to brass to sterling, or if you work in softer materials, there is no reason why you can’t use them on polymer clay, or metal clay before firing. Or after firing. Both works! Speaking of metal clay – more on that in a bit.

So this week – we have added a somewhat nautical – sea-based selection. There is an anchor, and a lighthouse, and a musical note – so you can sing sea shanties.

Not so nautical is Gerry the Giraffe. And some vines for him to eat. I can already see lots of possibilities for the vines – you could really go to town making borders and long vines and wreaths and meadows and stuff.

And then, there is the turtle.

Named Shelly. Because she has a shell. She’s Shelly. And you all say I’m bad. 😉

Now – on to the metal clay. We very much like the Prometheus metal clay, and are impressed that they continue to develop and expand the choices. It is reasonably priced and easy to work with and fire, so that the learning curve isn’t as steep, and the occasional “un-successes” aren’t so expensive as some of the other metal clays. (In fact – if you are new to metal clay – the Prometheus is an excellent starting place.)

The white bronze was probably the fussiest of all the Prometheus products to fire, and in response to customer feedback – they have created a new “white” metal clay – this one is also a bronze alloy, but with the brighter, silver white look of sterling silver and a simpler firing schedule. It is not sterling silver – despite the name – Jeweller’s Sterling White Bronze Clay. It is still a bronze alloy, but it is not priced like sterling silver either! Feedback has been very good so far and the firing process is easier than the original Prometheus White Bronze. (The image on the 200g pack is of a piece done by Liz Reynolds – who teaches at here at BeadFX!)
