I have used this set for making polymer clay flowers. I do also have the recommended Flower Impression Set and it is invaluable for using with this kit. I tried the foam shaping piece, but don't find that it works with poly clay. I have long since had the fondant modelling tools kit, and find many of them great and unique from items available for clay, but several are too soft. Anyway. This is a review for THIS product.
For Polymer clay: I do find I get cleaner edges when I put the cutter upside down, lay a sheet of clay gently over it, and roll a brayer over the clay, as was suggested by another review. The stem channel on the impression set doesn't work well for poly clay, so I just turn the leaf/petal over, place the wire on the back, and use a poly clay snake over the top of the wire and blend. I also add a dot of liquid poly clay at the base of the wire to keep it from pulling out. Make a "hook" at the top of the wire and add a dot of polymer clay as well. Otherwise, follow the instructions as suggested for how to make the leaves and petals and string them.
Use your clay on the thinnest pasta machine setting, and you can press it into the impression mat (if you have it)with your hands or a light roll with a brayer. Give the mat a light spritz of water first to help the petal or leaf peel off easily.
I bought the foam mat, but find that with poly clay, it is much easier to shape the pieces in my hand.
In any event, the result is often very impressive and life like flowers that keep forever when the set is used with polyclay. On the thinnest pasta machine setting, the clay has enough flexibilty that pieces with wires set inside are bendable and poseable. (well, ones made with Premo, anyway). I imagine the set would work with air dry clays, as well, but would not have the same flexibility.
Anyway, hope this helps!
I love that the cutters have a nicely sized rim at the top to use to press. Using standard metal cutters make my fingers very sore after cutting hundreds of pieces. I cut several hundred leaves and even more petals yesterday without getting sore at all.
If you're going to make most of the common flowers seen on many tutorials you will also need additional tools like veiners, modelers, and shaping foam in addition to this kit.
If it helps to evaluate this review, I'm a hobby baker/decorator and typically use gum paste tools to decorate cupcakes for family and work occasions, usually between 5-10 dozen at a time.
Perhaps, once we purchase the tools needed to make the flowers, we might just like this set....
