I got a chance to catch up with Lisa Pavelka at the Craft and Hobby Association Convention and Tradeshow last weekend, and was surprised to find her at the Fiskars Booth. In addition to her signature line of polymer clay with Viva Decor, Lisa was also espousing the benefits of Fiskars punches to use with cured- yes, CURED- polymer clay.

I must admit that I’ve had this product tucked away on the shelf for quite a while now, but haven’t been doing much polymer clay.
