Craft Project: Sushi Erasers

You know those cute little Japanese food erasers? Well now there are kits you can buy to make them. I purchased a set from JBox when I ordered the paperclay. I figured if I was going to be spending a lot on shipping, I might as well buy a few things to make it worth while. The eraser kits were something I had never seen before so I decided to test them out. Below I share how I made the erasers.

Here's the eraser kit I used. There's all different kinds of sets such as doughnuts, fast-food and cakes.

Here's what the eraser clay and molds look like. What's the nice about the molds is that they can be used for other things such as paperclay.

Knead the eraser clay and place it in the molds. Open it back up and clean the edges of any excess clay.

Take erasers out of mold. Microwave them in water for about five minutes (kit comes with a special box for that). Transfer to cool water. Once cooled off, pat dry.

Assemble your erasers for the perfect dish of sushi.

This project is cross-posted over at Must Have Cute (other site I write for).

They work just as well as child erasers you would buy at the store. I did find they're a little softer than regular erasers making them a little more fragile.

I have had a look on the JBox page and everything was so temting! Due to low taxes here in Norway it will cost the double for almost nothing.

Here is an another cute site:
