There can be nothing more frustrating than sculpting with white polymer clay. Before you know it dust, lint, fibers, rouge cat hair, glitter (than you haven’t used in a month), and specks of other colors of clay find there way embedded into your pristine white polymer clay. There’s no need to hyperventilate, panic, throw out the clay, scream, cry, or even give up completely. Here’s a few tips that might help you along your journey to whiter, sparklier, and all around crisper white sculpted designs.
White. Who isn’t afraid of white. I can tell you the number of white pieces in my closet: 2. Yep. 2. Why? Because when I wear it, I spill on it, sneeze on it or worse, someone else does.

It’s hard to keep clean. It’s hard to maintain it’s crisp, gorgeous, white clarity, and some brands even yellow after baking. Let’s face it, many people refuse to even work with it because of the problems associated with it. If you’ve struggled working with white polymer clay you are not alone.
