All-In-One CaBezel Package Deal!

https://www.etsy.com/listing/179711617/all-in-one-cabezel-mold-package-deal?ref=shop_home_active_1

Once again, I'm clearing out mismatched sets of the CaBezel Molds. Some of you may have seen this offer and now I'm doing it with the A-I-O's as well. The quality is still the same it's just that the manufacturer changed the color of the material.
There are some videos to watch to see how to use these molds and to give some inspiration.
Once you've used these molds you will see that possibilities for you to create your own unique pieces are
endless.



Paramount The Newest of the CaBezel Molds

It's here! The latest in the CaBezel Molds.
We called this one Paramount!  We're sure these large new shapes will command attention when used as a focal point for your work.
You can see the measurements and order it here.
As always, we love when you send us photos of what you create with these molds.
Why not be the first to show us your designs?

The New Pearl-Ex Chromatic Colors are here!

Pearl Ex Powdered Pigments

The new Chromatic Colors are are bright and vibrant!

New Pearl-Ex Chromatic Colors

Available at Shades of Clay in the small, convenient 3 gram size.



Pearl Ex Powdered Pigments are our most versatile product! Jacquard Pearl Ex is a safe, pearlescent, non-toxic, inert powdered pigment that exhibits extreme colorfastness and stability, ideal for interior and archival applications. It has a use for every artist, from watercolorist to auto painter, faux finisher to rubber stamper. Try it mixed with Jacquard Gum Arabic or Pearl Ex Varnish for applying to most surfaces. It can also be mixed with other artist mediums, oils, acrylics, encaustic, Dorland’s Wax, polymer clay, or spread dry on porous surfaces. Pearl Ex creates a metallic look without being a metal - it will not tarnish or fade. The different particle sizes produce different looks, from a smooth pearly luster, to a highly metallic sheen..Note: Pearl Ex Powdered Pigments were specifically developed as a art material.         They are NOT for cosmetic use.

New Pixie Art Texture Stamps


For those of you that may not know, this line of texture stamps is designed by Helen Breil's husband Mike.
How great is that? To have 2 creatives in the same household and to married!
At this point I'd actually be happy if my husband's eyes didn't glaze over whenever I start talking about my new designs or ideas!
I regress.....

Here they are 2 great new designs!
