Verushka Stevens on Sculpey Soufflé Polymer Clay
“As an Artist, and more specifically a polymer clay jewellery designer, much of my growth happens thanks to the materials and tools that make my work possible.
What is unique about Sculpey Soufflé Polymer Clay?
- Powerful flexibility: If you’ve worked with other brands that are a bit harder to condition and mould with your fingers, then you will immediately notice the nice flexibility that Sculpey Soufflé Polymer Clay offers. The pictured necklace would have been very hard to complete with “tough” clay (or clay that “crumbles” or “cracks” easily). You see, the “curved cylinder-like” pipes that hide underneath the patterns of clay on the necklace, required that the slices of canes be flexible enough to stretch a bit, and meet the corners of the other slices of cane that were next to it but at a totally different angle, without deforming its pattern or cracking/breaking.
- No Fingerprints: Sculpey Soufflé Polymer Clay doesn’t leave any fingerprints on its surfaces. You’ll notice a powdery kind of surface that not only prevents the clay from “sticking” to other clay, tools or your hands, but will leave no fingerprints! (No sanding needed!!).
- Easy to mix: As much as I love the vibrancy of most colours Sculpey delivers, there will always be a handful of colours that I’ll need to create in-house. Mixing colours couldn’t be easier and faster! I LOVED this about Sculpey Soufflé!
- Colours: This is a very subjective topic to discuss in the polymer clay world. But if you’re familiar with VeruDesigns, then you know that I’m drawn to vibrant, subtle, sometimes loud, contrasting and very very happy colours! Yes, I like neutrals too, but I’m never afraid of bringing in more than just browns, tans and greys. So, for VeruDesigns, the Souffle range of colours is a gift sent from the heavens!
Different kinds of polymer clay are wonderful for different kinds of projects based on the techniques that the Artist uses to create his/her Art. So, given my own unique techniques (which differ from others), I intend to incorporate Soufflé particularly for:
- 3D sculpting projects (portions of my Bridal necklaces),
- Designs where I’ll be creating many custom-colours, and
- Designs with curved surfaces (such as beads).”
