    I was browsing on you blogs and found this. ๐Ÿ˜€ And now, i have a new place to visit. ๐Ÿ™‚ where exactly in quiapo can i find the store for the metal findings? Familiar ba ang mga tao dun once i tell them the name of the store?

    • kageshoujo says:

      It’s a few seconds walk from Plaza Miranda/Quiapo Church. People around will definitely know it, hindi naman kasi siya looban. ^^ It’s on a street with many beads and craft stores magkakatabi. That street is right beside/behind the big Mercury drug building. ^^

    Hope to earn money for that its sooo expensive kasi want to try business to earn money. What clay works best for jewelry? What oven? Nung nag workshop kasi kami ng sis ko gamit oven toaster… So i am confused ๐Ÿ™

    • kageshoujo says:

      It’s a profitable business eventually. Pero sa start talaga you have to practice and gather experience muna. All these clays work very well for jewelry. I can’t recommend just one of them, I tend to use different kinds depending on what effect gusto i-achieve.

      Oven toasters are actually okay, but they have to have a temperature adjustment setting. Otherwise your stuff will be mostly burnt. Most oven toasters kasi go up in heat very fast at a short time so I dont like to recommend them in general. Pero may very few oven toasters na may temperature control, and those would work okay. ^^

    • yhem13 says:

      Hi sis. Try to search sa Lazada.com. dun ko nabili yung oven toaster ko. I got it for under 2k, worth it na. Dame na niang functions, dame ka na magagawa.รผ

    Do you know any shops in Divisoria where I can buy polymer clays and other tools?

    • kageshoujo says:

      Unfortunately there arent any shops in Divisoria that sell clay. ^^ None that me or other clay artist friends I know say so. Polymer clay is mostly from USA or Germany and since most shops in Divi are Chinese there’s very low chance that they’d sell it and tools related to it.

    woah this is nice.. stove top… and in water… How can I know if it’s done? The time and temperature? Did you try this before? Very nice blog post… bookmark kita ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. kageshoujo says:

    Thank you~ I haven’t tried it before but I saw a youtube video on it. (the poster was making a big cane na di kasya sa oven) I think you need a thermometer to check the temperature of the water constantly. ^^

    • Teri says:

      I’m searching for oven thermometer… How much bili mo ms. kageshoujo? Nakakita ako parang mga old stock naman, within our area lang. P450 siya. Parang namamahalan ako sa P450.. Meron din P250 but hindi decent yung lalagyan. Napansin ko yung dalawang arrow niya wala sa zero, normal lang kaya yun?

    • Teri says:

      Pakidelete na lang yung isang comment ๐Ÿ™‚

      Iโ€™m searching for oven thermometerโ€ฆ How much bili mo ms. kageshoujo? Nakakita ako parang mga old stock naman, within our area lang. P450 siya. Parang namamahalan ako sa P450. Siguro ok na ako sa 350. Meron din P250 but hindi decent yung lalagyan. Napansin ko yung dalawang brand na nakita ko yung arrow niya wala sa zero, normal lang kaya yun?

      • kageshoujo says:

        Hi sis~ Actually, I don’t use an oven thermometer yet myself. ๐Ÿ™ Kahit saan kasi ako tumingin sa area ko, wala siya, kahit sa malls or sa mga surplus appliance area. Naghahanap nga din ako. Yung sa arrows niya, okay lang yun. Siyempre kasi thermometer siya, so kung ano yung temperature ng area, dun magpopoint yung arrow, eh hindi naman zero degrees yung temperature natin dito sa Philippines so di talaga siya magsstay sa zero. ^^

        • Teri says:

          Sabagay tama ka.. ๐Ÿ˜€ naisip ko din yun nung bandang huli.. naguluhan lang talaga ako nung una na iba iba yung point ng arrow ng bawat brands, meron yung isa na as in nasa zero. Try ko ulit mag hanap ng ibaโ€ฆ

          May nabasa kasi ako na they use two oven thermometer to check whether accurate nga yung isa sa kanila.

          • kageshoujo says:

            Personally I just rely dun sa temperature setting ng oven ko, and gamayan at sanayan na lang sa oven. Iba-iba kasi yung oven na nabibili, at iba-iba yung bilis niya uminit at yung size (siyempre kung mas maliit yung oven mabilis uminit at maluto yung clay) so sa tagal ng panahon nalang na yun yung ginagamit ko na oven nasanay na ko sakanya. Pwede ka naman magtest, gumawa ka ng simple balls ng clay tapos i-try mo ibake, tapos pag malamig na hatiin mo sa gitna para makita kung luto hanggang sa loob.

            Yung iba ko ngang nakikita na clayist, super short mag-baking time, five minutes or less lang, pero I don’t recommend kasi di pa yan luto sa loob. Ako I just follow the instruction sa clay ko–at least 15 minutes for 1/4 inch na thickness. Pag kinoveran mo naman ng parchment paper sa ibabaw yung clay, hindi siya masusunog kahit matagal mo ibake. ^^

    Hello! Ever tried a polymer clay brand called Craft N’ Bake? It’s a china brand daw. I’m buying bulks of it tomorrow for my uncle’s project and I can’t find reviews of the brand online. Hope you can enlighten me on this. Or do you happen to know a shop that has at least 30 bars of white clay? Thanks!

    • kageshoujo says:

      Hi! I haven’t tried it, but I have heard of it and I’m fairly confident they’re legit. It’s a rather new brand of clay in the market so I don’t believe anyone has made reviews of it yet. Sadly I can’t point you to a shop that i’m sure carries that much white clay. White is often in demand and mabilis maubos. I do order bulk colors (often red and tig fifty bars kinukuha ko) from Nendo polymer clay, they have a warehouse and carry lots of stock. Baka sakali may white sila this time of the year na marami. ^^

    hi may embossing set po ba kayo?

  11. miraj says:

    hello may i ask do you gaze you clay ? and what glaze are you using ? , I dont wanna use sculpey glaze cuz their really expensive , so im looking into polyurethane glazes in the hardware … i found some but I’m scared because while researching about it i’ve leaarned it must be polyurethane , water based formula … and most blogs said verathane diamond gloss is the best… please help me .. i don’t think you can find that gloss here in the philippines

    • Xarin says:

      Sorry if this is a bit late! But I gloss my stuff using Judikins Diamond Glaze, which is even more expensive than Sculpey. ^^;; But as for hardware stuff, I tried experimenting with various hardware glosses yet none of them also worked. The only proven hardware gloss that will work (and works very well) is an item called New Future Polish from Pledge–it has to say “for acrylic surfaces” or “for acrylic protection”. However they’re only available in hardwares in the US, but you can buy them from online shops here like PurpleNook Clay shop (that’s where I bought mine from). A bottle costs 130pesos ata and it lasted me about a year. ^^

      • mirae ronquillo says:

        oh thank you!!! btw your blog really helped me a lot when i was starting ! so thank you soo much!! ๐Ÿ˜€ btw how much do you usually price your charms ?…cuz I’m really having a hard time pricing mine … ( not that good in business) … and its mostly ordered because crafting is really just a hobby for me ..so ah please help ! and thanks again !

        • Xarin says:

          Hello~! Glad to be of help!
          As for pricing, may usual “standard pricing” in the market if you often see clay products in bazaars or such
          Stud earrings are usually 50-80, dangling ones 80-120, necklaces 150-200, bracelets with many charms are 200-250
          Just charge depending on the complexity of the design and the size. Siyempre big items are more expensive, but small detailed ones also take work.
          Have fun~

    Hello i just want to ask kung may alam kang supplier ng bake and bond..mejo nahirapan kasi kami ng friend ko maghanap or anything na magandang pandikit for polymer clay

    • Xarin says:

      Unfortunately wala din ako masyadong kilala na laging nagsstock ng bake and bond, its pretty rare, sorry! ^^;; for clay I usually just bake them together and then once baked na I gently pull them away from each other again and then just glue with superglue or e-6000. ^^

Your blog was so informative!

  18. lex says:

    hi po kapag binake ko sa oven toaster ung clay mga ilang minutes po un?

    • Xarin says:

      Hi, we don’t advise baking your clay in an oven TOASTER. We recommend baking them in an electric oven where you can control the temperature. The temperature of a toaster is too high and most likely 1-2 minutes sunog na yung clay mo and will release toxic fumes.

    Hi ate, san ka po bumili nung plastic shaping tools? Meron ka po bang color shaper yung silicon yung dulo pang smooth ng surface ng clay?

    • Xarin says:

      Hi, I bought my plastic tooks from Deovir, a specialty art store that also sells polymer clay. They have branches in SM North, recto, and SM megamall among some. They should have the silicon tools as well. ^^

  24. Shiela says:

    Hi! This post really helped me. I’ve been thinking of starting on a new hobby for me and my daughter. She loves arts and crafts and she’s been watching videos on youtube about clay making art. I just don’t know have any idea on where to start, good thing I found your site.
    Thanks a lot!
