I’m going to take some time to share some of my favorites things in my studio that I use with polymer clay. Today I’m going to share my Inkadinkado Blending Chalk set with you. I have also shared how I use them in this blog post, make sure you catch that too.
Things to Consider:
There are numerous chalk sets available online or in your local craft store that are compatible with polymer clay. This set is my favorite and has served me well for almost 7 years now!
There are two sets of Inkadinkado Blending Chalks:
Soft Tones – Available with Prime Shipping from Amazon here
Bold Brights – This is the set I have. Buy on Amazon here (the picture is misleading, look at the reviews and you will see the customer photograph of the chalk set).
Many people prefer pan pastels as they are softer and more richly pigmented than blending chalks.
Blending chalks offer buildable color.
As you will see on my video, the colors are indeed richly pigmented!
When using with a brush applied directly to clay they can offer the softest of washes without being overly pigmented (like pan pastels).
Just a slight swirl of color on your brush and a light rub onto the surface of the clay and you have a wash of color that is soft and gentle.
Smoothing over the color with a dry finger will also help to smooth and soften the color even more.
