Clay Cutters Happy Fancy Things

With cutters for the clay, you create a beautiful result in a short time.
Condition a piece of clay, lay the clay piece flat on a tight and flat surface and push the cutters into it. And then remove the cutter from the clay again.
Et voila, you immediately have a pendant that you can use on a necklace, you can make earrings with it, but a brooch is also possible.

Cutters sometimes want to cut difficult. The clay cutters from HappyFancyThings, the house brand of HappyThings, do have a unique thin protruding edge. This edge is 0.25 mm. this is exceptionally thin for a clay cutter. As a result, this cutter cuts into the clay instead of the cutter pushing the clay away, which you see with cutters with thick edges. And the big advantage is that with a thin cutting edge of 0.25 mm. the clay hardly needs touching up. You will not get frayed and unsightly cut edges.

Both the clay brand and the conditioning have an influence on the end result and the use of the cutter.

If the clay cutter sticks to the clay, it is best to:

Place transparent thin foil (cling film) over the clay, put it on very soon, cut out the clay and then remove the foil. As a result, the clay cannot stick to the cutter and the great additional advantage is that the cutter remains clean.

Dip the clay cutter for use in cornstarch and then use the clay cutter for the clay. The cornstarch ensures that the clay cutter does not stick to the clay.

Use a tile as a substrate , for example a smooth wall or floor tile. The clay adheres to the tile so that the cutter is easy to remove after use.

If the clay is very soft and the weather is warm, you can put the clay in the fridge for 10 minutes. This makes the clay a bit firmer and cutting out will be easier and the clay will stick less to the cutter.

What is the best option for you is something that you can best test for yourself. Personal preference in terms of working method in combination with the clay brand can influence the choice.

Good luck!!
