It's okay after all!
Back in September I was lamenting the change in the Bic Stick Pens. For years I was using the white pens as a base for my polymer clay. This past fall I discovered that the pens had changed. They were no longer white and I assumed that they would not hold up in the toaster oven. (When will I learn that one can not assume anything?)
After complaining about it on my blog (and to anyone who would listen) and writing an email to the Bic company, I decided to test out the new pen casing. Well, they work just fine. (Now I'm feeling a little sheepish.) The pen cartridge is a little harder to pull out of the casing, but other than that they work beautifully.
So, we are back in business, Working with the polymer is a fun thing to do with friends. The collection above is the result of a few evenings of work by a friend and I. We are on a roll and there is another dozen waiting for the glaze (which deepens the color.)
