Saturday is clay day here at beadFX!  

From 10 am to 5pm on April 28th join me (Jennifer) for a fun Metal Clay Playday. We have plenty of Art Clay Copper in stock, plus for those of you who have taken Hadar's class, we also have her clay available for sale and use!

NOTE: For those choosing to use Hadar's clay, there will be an additional firing fee. (TBD) The firing is a multistage process, and can take up to three weeks to finish.

Also on Saturday join Stephanie for a few hours of adding some serious bling to your clay creations!

Come play with the hottest product on the market that sold out in Tucson! As seen last year at the Toronto Bead Society Fall fair, and in upcoming issues of Bead Style - Crystals and Bead Unique, be ahead of the trend and make your own Crystal Clay Bling. 

Crystal Clay is a two part epoxy clay that is easily mixed and formed into any shape. Working time is approximately 1 1/2 hours after mixed and clay is fully hardened in 24 hours. Simply mix and knead both parts of the epoxy clay together for several minutes. Add SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS fancy stones and bling out anything!
