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 took the survey. The changes in the clay have been so frustrating. Hope it will make a difference.

                                                It’s getting more and more frustrating to pick up a package of clay…and not know whether it will work or not due to the changes in formulas…Not to mention the latest color discontinuations by Polyform. I normally buy in bulk, but occasionally have to fill in between orders. It’s frustrating when I’m unable to get the primaries I need.

Since I “dabble” and have no information about Cernit or Pardo (from personal experience) and since I simply don’t have comparisons on all the various translucent clays, etc. I ended up bailing out. If I make stuff up, it’s a worthless skewing of the results. Oh well…
