Question about storage of polymer clay

brendak_59August 19, 2009

For the ones of you that have an outside building for your crafts--how do you store your clay? I am trying to get my building ready to move into but I will not be leaving my air or heat on all the time and I know the clay can't get to hot. So I am looking for ideas and what to do.

I keep mine in air tight bags and I put that in cigar boxes.
I keep mine in the garage here in San Antonio Texas and it seems to do ok.

I am worried about the heat making the clay to hard. It gets pretty hot in my building during the day. I had thought about putting the clay in a small frig. Do you think that will work?

My school art classroom is not air conditioned in the summer (or any day after 3:30) and I just experienced the heartbreak of throwing out about $200 worth of otherwise perfectly good polymer clay because it hardened over the summer. Granted, here in central OK it gets pretty hot.

So maybe the fridge would help.
