I bought 2 colors of the new studio clay, I decided to play around and make a skinner blend with 3 colors. The Studio clay is pretty soft, so I wanted to use a softer clay to add to the blend (not FIMO!). So, I used Scupley 3 white in the middle of the 2 Studio colors (blush and iris). I conditioned each color really well, made carrots out of them and ran them through my pasta machine. As the clay began to blend, the blush color began to peel off of the top of the white. The Iris blended okay, but not well, like I am used to with Skinner blends. When I make them, I try to stay with the same brand, maybe this is a lesson learned. But, I do that because one will blend faster than another due to consistency, not because it will peel off! But, I have never experienced anything like this, it sucks!
What is the difference between a sewing machine and a serger? I am thinking of buying one, my price range is very low, I will make pillows, curtains and the like, I may try a tote or purse. No embroidery or anything. I know htere is a sticky topic, but it is 44 pages long!
