I have been looking for some time to find the right container for storing my clay canes and blends and such. I found these containers in the scrap booking section at a Michael's store and bought a few to test out. I figured I could use them for other things if they were not compatible with the clay.
I was happy to discover that they are totally compatible and I love that they are shallow so you can store a lot of clay canes and pieces without having to stack them.
So on the next sale I picked up a bunch more and I love how they all fit nicely on the shelves at my clay work table.
The other item I was always looking for were those cool deli sheets that work great for wrapping and storing your clay. They are just not a common item to buy here in Canada and I have never had success finding them. I managed to buy some from a guild member who brought a few boxes up from the U.S. and showed them to my friend Denyse. Well the next day she comes over with a box of these "perfect portions" bags by ziploc for me. I could hardly believe it that it was the exact same stuff but in "bag" form. We just cut the bottoms off and slit them open and voila --- we now have lots of sheets for our clay. Thanks to Denyse that she found these (she bought them at Costco real cheap) and I thought I would pass this info on to anyone who has had a difficult time as well to find such a thing.
