The newest Polymer Clay on the market today
In 1994, Marie and I approached Polyform Products to make a New Clay!!!! We felt that it was best to go to Polyform Products to work on this project. No sense starting a whole new polymer clay factory.
We had been working with the F-word polymer clay for 15 years by that time. There wasn't anything we didn't know about it. From the beginning we spent many hours on the phone talking to other artists on how to make that clay work for all of us ,(if you are one of those artists and want me to mention your name, let me know)! Together, we all developed many techniques that are used today by all of you : advanced, new and upcoming artists.
We took all of the knowlegde we had using that F-word clay, and used it to make the best all around American-made polymer clay!
Below are some of the things we did:
We needed to name this new clay....... We took it upon ourselves, and called it Clay Factory Clay during the testing process. I have to thank all of you that supported us in this venture for giving us the needed feedback.
We found that working with PREMO was entirely different than working with the F-word clay. It actually took some time getting used to using this new clay. The properties were very different. We had to rethink some of the techniques we had developed. We eliminated using the food processer. Meaning no more grinding first.
This saved us a lot of time...... We also found that many other things were different. It didn't take long to make the adjustment. We have no problem doing anything we want using PREMO! Above and beyond this, many new techniques are now being developed using PREMO and it's properties to best advantage!!! This is really wonderful for us to see.
Premo Sculpey has been developed by Marie Segal, in conjunction with Polyform Products,
keeping the artist in mind.
Marie capitalized on many years of experience, using polymer clays, to enhance the qualities of this clay.
Mix two colors together until blended. This is how long you should mix the clay, even if you are mixing one color.
It can be polished (can look like glass), cut, sanded, drilled
