Answers to FAQ's

What is polymer clay?

Polymer clay is a special type of clay that hardens in the oven. It is a color-fast medium, meaning the colors will remain true years after. It is also lightweight, making it a suitable inclusion to jewelry.

There are different brands and types of polymer clay, but we use only the most durable brands. The clay that we use is jewelry-grade: very strong and can withstand everyday use.

I forgot to take off my polymer clay ring before swimming!

If the piece is entirely made of polymer clay (like our clay rings), there’s no need to worry. Our polymer clay pieces are water-resistant. However, if the piece has metal in it, you have to be careful to keep it away from moisture. Even gold or sterling silver will be damaged by salt water or chlorinated water.

Will it break?

Our polymer clay pieces are made with the highest quality, jewelry-grade polymer clay. Before we ship out our pieces, we test them out by throwing them across the room to see if they’ll break. Seriously.

So they won’t break with normal everyday wear. They won’t break if you accidentally drop them.

But as they say, when there’s a will, there’s a way: when you forcefully try to break it with a hammer, or tug on thin pieces with force, say goodbye to your precious clay piece.

For tips on caring for your polymer clay pieces, read here.

I use my cupcake necklace everyday, and noticed that it’s now a bit soiled. Can I clean it?

Baked polymer clay pieces are easy to clean. For tips on caring for your pieces, read here.

Is polymer clay the same as air-dry clay?

No, it is not. I get this question all the time, so let me enlighten you. Polymer clay is oven-bake clay. The heat from the oven bonds the particles of the clay together, making it very strong (the strength, of course, depends on the brand you use). On the other hand, air-dry clay hardens after the moisture has evaporated.

Polymer clay is water-resistant (again, this depends on the brand you use), air-dry clay is water-soluble. This means that if you want to use air-dry clay for jewelry, you need to coat it with a water-resistant sealer, so that moisture from your skin won’t react to it.

Please refer to the info below (by clicking on the photos) before sending us an email. The answer to your question might already be posted. :)

One Morning guesting (May 27, 2008)

Super aga ng call time (6am, I am not a morning person!), but we got there on time! What an accomplishment! Hah!

The interview was kinda long (for a TV segment, 8 minutes is long!), so I got to discuss a lot about my work and the workshops. Pero halatang walang energy ako, super hina ng voice.

Aired live on NBN 4, IBC 13, and RPN 9.

Thanks to the mababait na staff and writers! :)
