How to Turn Round Clay Cutters into Custom Shapes

By on Wednesday, March 01, 2017 1 Comments

There are all sorts of cutters you can buy for polymer clay work.  Not just from art and jewelry stores but also cookie cutters.  It can get a tad expensive if you want different shapes. So check out this easy tutorial by Ludmila Bakulina where she turns ordinary round metal cutters into custom shapes!


I like this idea because I am not fond of cutting clay shapes using a sharp tool and these templates.

She used shape templates though to draw onto paper.  The drawings then helped her bend the round shapes into the ones she wanted.



The links she mentioned for purchasing cookie cutters are for a Russian site and eBay.  So I searched for cheaper alternatives (at the time of writing).  You can get this fabulous Mrs. Anderson's Cookie Cutters, Graduated Round, 11-Piece Set with Storage Tin (affiliate link) for just $13!  I would say that is very cost effective. It's now on my wish list!

You're AWESOME! Thanks for the comment and feedback. You do make a difference on my blog!

  1. Isn't this a brilliant idea!!

    The cost of polymer clay cutters can really add up when you are looking for different shapes and they do make it so much easier to get the job done.

    I like the cost of Mrs. Anderson's cookie cutters but fitting them back into the tin once you change the shape - ya...that's not going to happen - but oh well! Finding a cookie tin to fit the manipulated shapes into shouldn't be that hard...once you eat the cookies! :0)

    Enjoying all the different polymer clay tips you've been handing out lately Pearl! Anyone else with me on this? :0)
