Shades of Clay was Established in 2002. That’s 17 years serving your creative community!
We are an online retailer focused on enhancing the creative expression of the artist in you. Local artists and crafters are welcome to come pick up their orders (by appointment only please.) Here is the link to our shipping page.
We were a founding member of the Southern Ontario Polymer Clay Guild and are a member of the Craft and Hobby Association.
In 2013 Shades of Clay was purchased by me Wendy Orlowski, (the face behind The Art of My Clay.)
The wide range of polymer clay, tools, supplies and embellishments found on the long established Shades of Clay website has been augmented by the Art of my Clay texture stamps and exclusive CaBezels. This merger provides an extensive and comprehensive supply for the Polymer Clay, Alcohol Ink, Jewelry, Mixed Media Artist and much more….
