tooth trouble

Today I had to go to the dentist, yuch! I'm such a baby about going. Bad experiences as a child have now developed into a phobia as an adult. "How does this tie into polymer clay", you ask. I was lusting after the dentist's tools as he was jamming them into my mouth. I know there are a lot of polymer clay artists that use them. I used to go to auctions quite a bit and often they'd sell old antique dentists cabinets with the tools still inside. I would imagine a new set would be pretty costly. I could always ask - next week when I have to go back for another filling!! The moral of the story is "floss". Pin It

Dental tools are not that expensive at all. I use mine for mosaic work (moving small slivers of glass around) and for polymer clay work.

Here's a link to some under $20 - http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=11335&utm_source=GoogleBase&utm_medium=aff&utm_campaign=GAN
