Are you ready to POUNCE? One of the best tools to have on your bench is a pouncer filled with baking soda to lightly dust tools and surfaces as a resist for things you DON'T want to stick.
Use it by taping your tool onto the sock to coat the tip with powder, or pick it up and tap on any surface to distribute a fine dusting of powder. If clay is sticking to your tools, this coating will minimize it. The benefit of using baking soda over other materials is that besides working better, it is easy to wash off with no left over stickiness from raw or baked clay. Great for adding a resist in molds too.
These cute little socks are filled with baking soda and tied closed with a nice ribbon and a charm (so you can open and refill when needed. Sure you can make your own, but why buy all the extra materials when you can have one ready to use!
Who said tools can't be pretty!
TIP: Keep it handy on your work table by setting it in a fancy little dish that will contain any excess powder.
