Inside KatersAcres Polymer Clay Studio, What's In My Spinner | Come and See the Tools I Use Daily

One of my favorite posts that other artists do is a glimpse into their studio. I love to see their workspaces, how they create, and even the tools they use. While this post will NOT be exhaustive by any stretch of the imagination, it will definitely give you some great insight into my daily grind in my polymer clay studio.

My Bamboo Spinner

My bamboo spinner from Pampered Chef is one of my favorite items in my studio. I received it as a Christmas present from my Mom in 2012. She actually bought it for herself for her kitchen tools, but her tools were too tall and ended up “flopping” out of it. Long story short, she hated it for her kitchen tools. She was going to return it but thought that it might be just the right size for my studio. You know what? She was right. Thanks for the tool caddy Mom!

What’s In My Spinner

Needle Tools

Sculpting Tools

  • Christi Friesen’s Tools
  • Parker’s Poker Tool
  • A variety of different sized dotting tools
  • Studio by Sculpey Tools Set
  • A variety of rubber shapers (not shown, they are on the backside)
  • Wipe Out Tool – I don’t use this that often, but Ginger from Blue Bottle Tree has an excellent review on this.
  • Toothpicks – Never underestimate the handiness & supremacy of the everyday item!

Texture Tools

  • MALE Velcro
  • Sculpey Texture Wheels – Really fun for a quick burst of texture without dragging out hundreds of stamps.
  • Polyform’s Etch & Pearl Set – I don’t use these often, but when I need them there is NOTHING else comparable on the market.

Cutting Tools & Blades

Other Tools

Around the Spinner (But Not Inside)

This listing of tools and miscellaneous items from my polymer clay studio (at least the ones in my spinner) is by no means exhaustive. I have tried, loved, & hated many tools in my day. But the tools in my spinner are the ones I reach for 95% of the time.

EDITORS NOTE: This article was published in JUNE 2015 and many of these tools & supplies I no longer use. I will edit & update this list as soon as possible.
