I’ve created ornaments, statues, pins, earrings, magnets, and even a diorama, and I hope to expand my horizons in the future. For all this work, Sculpey III has usually been my clay of choice — it’s easier to work with than Fimo, bakes easily in the oven, and comes in a fantastic variety of colors. The down side is that Sculpey breaks easily, and if it’s been stored for a long time it can become crumbly and even more fragile after baking. Recently, while making commissions, our local store ran out of Sculpey III in the White Pearl shade, and since I had little other option I purchased the Sculpey Premo instead. And I was happily surprised at the difference. Premo doesn’t require conditioning or much kneading, and is soft and pliable straight out of the package. It shapes well without cracking or crumbling, and holds its shape well after sculpting. I made two pieces almost entirely out of Premo Pearl (with some accents of regular Scupley III), and though they took longer to bake than I was used to, the resulting pieces were strong and felt more like ceramic than Sculpey. The color and texture after baking were very pleasing as well. I was very pleased with this product, and will be using it more often now.

This review is from: Premo Polymer Clay (Office Product) I expected this to be a shimmering white/creamy white and what I got was a light silver. I have seen three photos for this product while I was looking over options all of them except one showed a shimmering whitish color, the other was accurate. So you should be aware that this is not what you typically see when you order a pearl color. It also was very soft, I found it a little hard to work with because it wouldn’t firm up and hold form really well I ended up having to lay my piece on it’s side before baking otherwise it would eventually fold over. So it was a bit too soft for my taste although on the other side of that is it was really easy to mold.

This review is from: Premo Polymer Clay (Office Product) These larger sizes are great when you need a lot for several crafters and projects. Easy to use soft clay.
