Custom Erasers — Oh The Possibilities

OK. So I think I’m beginning to realize that I have this obsession with being able to make things that you really shouldn’t be able to make yourself. Like soap. How cool is it that you can buy melt and pour soap and make it in any shape you please? I found some old Mr. T chocolate molds last year and made Mr. T shaped soap. So wrong … yet so right.

eraser clay Along these same lines here’s my latest jaw-dropping discovery. Did you know that you could make your own custom erasers? Sculpey — who makes polymer clay products — has a special susbtance which you use like polymer clay but when you’re done baking it it’s an eraser!

Here’s how they describe it:
Amazing Eraser Clay is the all new oven-bake modeling clay that becomes a real eraser after it is baked in a regular oven for ten minutes. Amazing Eraser Clay can be molded, sculpted, stamped or patterned, just like regular Sculpey clays, to create a vibrant collection of usable erasers.

I can’t help but think there are some sort of subsersive or irrevent erasers in my future…

    Where in the world did you find Mr. T molds?! Those would make fantastic gag gifts!

    positron gave me neon green eraser clay for my birthday; i haven’t used it yet, but i spend a lot of time thinking about how cool it is. (she also gave me pastel dye sticks; very 80s, very nonsensical and great. this is one of the best things about having crafty buddies.)

    ya know… i got some of that cool eraser clay last year, the erasers didn’t really erase that well. maybe I just
    over cooked it. Anyhow, maybe i’m just too picky about the quality of my erasing experience!

    Someone asked where I got the Mr. T molds … there is a cake decorating shop near me with some really old stock. These are “chocolate lollipop” molds that I found amongst all the others they had. I also found He-Man molds! I bet checking eBay from time to time would be a good way to find some 80′s molds.

    I gave the eraser clay to my daughter and her friends to make back to school erasers, a real “Mom of the year” moment. Will it make up for sending PB&J in her lunch for the next 10 months? hope so…

    i worked at a craft store and someone had made up some cute little critters with the eraser clay. i tried one out and it erased surprisingly well. we only sold the sculpey eraser kit but i noticed a local art store sells the individually which is perhaps more practical for those who don’t need thousands of them

    Those are great! You can just lather yourself up with one of those and watch those muscles turn to plain ole fat!
