One of the best features of the Craft and Hobby Association Tradeshow is the Innovations Sneak Peak. (Fit’s a marriage of the CHA Hot 20 and the Innovations Showcase. ) It’s a chance to see some of the cool new products demonstrated in an intimate setting.
Mix and Match Gelato tool set…. and the new Mix and Match Color sets. I think the color palettes are spot- on, and so much more interesting to use than just a monochromatic set!
This next photo is of the Envirotex Jewelry Clay. It’s a two-part epoxy clay that is stunning. It has an open time of 2 hours and cures completely in five. AND you can paint it after it’s cured, or work oil or acrylic paint into the uncured clay to tint it.
OH! And here I am taking a look at the Envelope Punch Board from We R Memory Keepers. Make multiple sizes with the same tool- plus a corner-rounding tool and an on-board bone folder.
These silicone mold are designed to be used with gum paste or fondant- but I can see a lot of applications for paper clay, resin, and UTEE.
Purple Cows has come up with an affordable line of Encaustic Waxes to use with their MELT-IT iron. Such lovely color!
But of course, there were many more. You can read the whole list here.
Now….wondering what my top picks are? Well, here they are in no particular order:
- EnviroTex Jewelry Clay
- Fiskars Fuse Creativity System (which we’ve already reviewed on CTD, but I think it’s really cool nonetheless.)
- We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board (we’ll have a video on that probably this weekend!)
So…those are my picks. Which one would you want us to review first???
