Product Review and Giveaway: Lisa Pavelka Signature Series


#75 Jenny!

The Lisa Pavelka Signature Series JHB International includes a variety of tools for polymer clay: Border Molds, Texture Stamps, Craft Foil, Magic Gloss, Embossing Cutters, and Claying Around DVD.

Product Review By Maria Nerius


At least one member of the testing team has had the pleasure to watch Lisa Pavelka in action demonstrating her signature series product line. Lisa has made it easy to create designer pieces with polymer clay. The tools are efficient and easy to use. The Border Mold makes impressive boarders that are thick and well detailed. The cutters are some of the best the testing team has every tried. The Texture Stamps are richly detailed. Magic Gloss is pretty cool and again, so easy to use. This is a very complete product line. If you’d like to learn more about working with polymer clay the Claying Around DVD is done in a fun and informative fashion.


Tester Feedback

•    Great product line, anything you need is there for working with polymer clay from start to finish of any project.
•    Excellent detail on the border molds and texture stamps. Fresh and fashionable patterns.
•    Magic Gloss adds a shiny finishing touch. Easy to use and no mess with the tip.
•    Foil was interesting to use and results were perfect.
•    Claying Around was fun to watch and there was a ton of great information on technique.

  16. Terri Snyderman says

    What a wonderful offer! Her borders look great – I’ve had trouble with home made borders not being even and consistent. I’d like to try these with a mica shift and also embedding some hole-less beads.

    I like using mixed media and the borders and texture sheets look substantial enough to complement the more three dimensional items I incorporate.

    And who wouldn’t like a great new set of cutters 😉

  17. Ulrike says

    125 comments, wow. I love Lisas products, what a pity, that they are not available in germany, only via Internet-Order.

  18. says

    I’m overwhelmed with the wonderful and kind comments here on this site. It’s so nice to hear from friends who posted and new friends I have yet to meet. I never really intended to develop a line of products, but these came naturally as I couldn’t find textures and tools for my clay and mixed media work that I needed. This was truly a result of my passion to create.

    Yes, many of my products (texture stamps, border molds, and embossing cutters work well with metal clay. Magic-glos also works great after metal clay is fired.

    I miss Carol Duvall so much like many of you and wish for the opportunity to get clay and crafting back on TV in a big way. I’d love to be a part of that, especially if it involved Miss Carol! She knows how much you all miss her and appreciates your love and support.

    I welcome your questions on polymer clay, metal clay and Crystallized TM – Swarovski Elements on my website:

    I have just joined Twitter and I invite all of you who are not already on my Facebook to become friends there. For news and updates about my products, classes and creative adventures, I invite you to visit my blog:

    Thanks to Maria Nerius for a great review. Best of luck to all of you in winning. The response has been so wonderful, we may just have to offer a prize package again in the future!

    Happy Claying!

    Creatively Yours,


  19. says

    I’m planning to take your class at A Work of Heart in San Jose in June…wouldn’t it be great to win the tools I’d need? Plus, I have to buy duplicates of everything so I have a set for Art Clay Silver as well as one for polymer. Love the textures!

  20. Roxanna says

    Totally cool, especially for some projects I’ll be starting soon.

    And I can’t wait to find a reason to try Magic Gloss!

  21. Geri Sauser says

    I used to work a lot with polymer clay in the 90’s. Then I got too busy. I am beginning again and am very impressed with all the new clays and tools, not to mention the techniques. (Canning was new and I had just started experimenting when I “dropped out”) Your prize package looks very exciting.

  22. says

    I’ve used a few of Lisa’s products over the years and have been more than happy with each of them. What a nice thing to do Lisa! Your demos on our much-missed Carol Duval show were always so easy to follow and so much fun! I’d love to have that DVD!



  23. says

    Lisa is great person, friend and mentor. I’ve tried some of these products but can’t resist to try to win some more. 🙂
    I hope you’ll pick me. 🙂

  24. Vivian says
