An accurate polymer picture…

As a guest blogger, I would like to direct your attention to an issue that affects the polymer community and to offer you the opportunity to have your opinion heard.

The manufacturers are grappling with many issues that center around reformulating polymer and bringing the best product to market. Your response to this comprehensive survey allows you to rank which issues are most important to you. With an accurate picture of our needs manufacturers may make products that suit us better.

Grab your favorite beverage and expect to invest 10 to 15 minutes of your time to answer 40 questions. The responses will be tallied and sent as one document to all the polymer manufacturers. Here’s the survey.

As a thank you for your efforts, you will have a chance to win an autographed copy of Terra Nova – Polymer Art at the Crossroads, released in conjunction with the opening of the Racine Art Museum’s exhibition. This special book has been signed by all the boundary-breakers! To enter the drawing, fill out the survey and comment on this post “I took the survey.” Then check next Monday to see if you won.

Editor’s Note: Congratulations to Carol Dotin, winner of this giveaway. Thanks to all who participated.

                          I had no problems with the link. I took the survey and thought the questions were quite interesting. Maybe “certain brands” will listen about not messing with their primary colours!

As a professional designer working with Premo I feel it is vital they maintain their primary colours and not just concentrate on the hobby market. My answers reflect this.

                                                      I took the survey. I really hope it helps. I’m tired of not knowing what I’m facing when I open a new package of clay these days. Colors are not consistent, consistency is inconsistent, results are unpredictable, and I’ve had some major disasters because of this. I don’t have the time to waste while the powers that be play around with the qualities of these raw materials. Please, somebody, do something!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love working with polymer clay but I’m getting so frustrated that, when my stash of old stuff runs out, I may stop.

                                                              Thank you, Lindly (and anyone else involved) for putting this comprehensive survey together. I’ll be sure to direct folks to PCD, and encourage them to take the time to fill it out. I look forward to seeing the results. (Where might one look for that? And would you need help in processing the results?)

                                                              Btw, please do NOT include me in the drawing. I already have a copy of the book and don’t want to prevent someone else from winning (not that I would win it…I seem to never win anything! lol).
