Jeannie Havel demonstrated the newest “I have to have it!” polymer clay tool at Polydelphia!: The Makin’s Clay Core Adapter. Put this little disc in your Makin’s clay gun and extrude tubes of clay with the hole for stringing already in place. Great for tube beads and bracelets!
You can get yours from Karen at Clay Alley: http://www.clayalley.com/tools.htm
And if you want to extrude large quantities or extrude tile beads with the holes in place, take a look at Guild Member, Wilma Yost’s extruder at Polymer Clay Express: http://www.polymerclayexpress.com/
And as for Polymer Clay Express, we are hoping to have a Guild Field Trip to the Artway Studio/Polymer Clay Express for our June meeting. Keep an eye on this space and your email for details!
