I will be making a very large move shortly and would like to sell my
excess polymer clay. I just purchased it recently (May 1997). I would
like to sell it all at once, since I will be moving within a month. This
is a list of what the box would contain:

Fimo (13 oz. blocks, unopened)
Lapis Lazuli, Granite, Golden Yellow, Light Turquoise, Lavender,
Turquoise (not stone), Bordeaux Red, Transparent, Leaf Green, Navy Blue,
Bronze, Jasper, Flesh Pink, Lilac, Ochre, Turquoise (stone), Carmin,
Midnight Blue, Pearl & Pink.

Fimo (2 oz. blocks, unopened)
Champagne, Transparent, Ochre, Terra Cotta, Carmin, Blue, Pink & Red.

Sculpey III (2oz. blocks, unopened)
Brown (#552), Copper (#1017), Pearl (#1101), Ivory (#501), Pink Pearl
(#1102), Pewter (#1129) & Bronze (#1085).

Books:  New Ways with Polymer Clay by Kris Richards
        Creative Clay Jewelry by Leslie Dierks
        Creating with Polymer Clay by Steven Ford & Leslie Dierks
        The New Clay by Nan Roche

Please email me if you are interested. I would send you everything
listed above for $200 includes shipping & handling. Also, I do have a
lot of s***clay, canes that didn't turn out right, opened FIMO and
some tools, does anyone know where I could donate these items. Do you
think that art depts. at local schools would be interested?

Hello! I've just been sculpting for about a week. I'm already ***ed.
I've noticed that most of you talk of using Fimo, rather that Sculpey.
But, I haven't found a store in my area that has a large variety of
fimo. I live near St. Louis, if there is anyone on the list that could
send me some locations that might be near me I'd appreciate it. Also, if
anyone just wants to send a beginner some good advice, I could sure use
it.

I dont use Fimo; hurts my hands too much. Sculpey also bruises my
hands, but not as bad. I dont cane, mostly make jewelry but also do
a lot of sculpting. We are in the minority here, but we are still
active. Just jump in with questions or comments. I do, and no one's
yet told me to shut up!

No, No! You must pack all this in a box an ship it to yourself at your new
address so you can continue claying!

Actually, anybody who buys the clay would probably love having extra tools --
why not throw them in if you were going to give them away anyhow, and let them
share with guild members or something if they really don't need them? (I might
be sorely tempted if I didn't have to pay for Arrowmont!)

If clay is bruising your hands, either you have old clay or else you aren't
conditioning it very well. With stiff clay, chop it into small pieces and only
start softening a handful at a time -- what you can close in your fist. (If
you have a food processor dedicated to clay, of course, this is moot -- use it
to chop and pre-warm the clay, then knead as much as you can handle at once.)
Fimo for example, I can only do about a quarter block at a time when it's
fresh from the package because I have small hands. once you get it started,
you can add more clay and continue with a larger hunk, but in small amounts
bruising shouldn't happen.

There is another reason to have difficulty and/or pain when working with
clay, especially the conditioning process:  it's called arthritis and if
you have it in your hands, even closing a bunch of small pieces in your
***can cause searing pain.  Carpal tunnel syndrome and other
nerve-related problems also present challenges for users of even the
freshest clay.

Yes, we all knw that -- this person was describing BRUISING. As a world's
champion bruiser, I addressed THAT concern.

Yes, MLBee, I have carpal tunnel, but the main problem I have is that
I bruise easily. I use Sculpey, buying only what I need and not keeping
a larg amount on hand, so old clay is not the problem, as Sherry
suggests. It's just me, not the clay. After all these years on this
planet, I know what works best for me, and I try not to make assumptions
about anyone else's capabilities or lack of capabilities. I try not
to judge anyone else, cuz I have a lot of medical problems, and know
what it's like to NOT be able to do what I want the way I want. I have
found ways to get things done, and only once in awhile I'll complain,
even tho I try not to be a complainer. I have a *** friend who
complains about her aches and pains almost daily, then when she found
out the things that were wrong with me, almost stopped emailing me
cuz she was embarrassed. I dont like to talk about my self like that,
so most people dont know I have any problems. To assume that everyone is
like everyone else is assumeing a lot.
