Create detailed shapes in polymer clay, Apoxie® Sculpt and other jewelry-making materials with Lisa Pavelka’s embossing cutters. Learn more about how to use these handy jewelry clay tools from Lisa herself.


To use Lisa Pavelka Embossing Cutters, place the cutter on a sheet of clay then depress its outer edges to cut the shape into the clay just like using a cookie cutter.

To emboss the veins of the leaf into the clay, leave the cutter in place after cutting out the shape then press the plunger of the cutter into the clay and apply pressure all around to be sure the veins of the leaf are even in depth.

Many great designs can be made using this product, such as baking the clay after cutting and embossing then adding a layer of Signature Series Magic-Glos® to its surface. Even easier, lightly dust a layer of mica powder on the embossed surface of the cut clay to give a look of powder coated metal.
