Let’s Make Erasers Kit Review

Let’s make erasers kit

I’m sure you’re all familiar with all the cute animal and food erasers you can get from Iwako. Well with Kutsuwa’s Let’s Make Erasers range of kits, you can have a go at making your own!

The kit I tried is for making a selection of sweets, and came with some molds, 3 clays and a container to set the erasers in. You also need a toothpick or skewer, some water and a microwave.

The instructions are only in Japanese, but they have plenty of pictures so are quite easy to follow. Using the various moulds, I soon had some little sweets assembled together.

To set the clay, the erasers are heated in water in a microwave and then put into cold water. Unfortunately, a number of my sweets came apart whilst being heated, but I was able to squeeze most of them back together whilst they were still warm. However, a few of the fruits still had to be glued back on afterwards.

My finished erasers! I think they turned out really well and they were fun to make. The moulds make it nice and easy to produce some good looking sweets. You could also reuse the moulds with polymer clay to make even more variations.

I tested and the erasers do work. However I’m not sure how well they would stand to regular use or being in a pencil case considering the little pieces they are made up of. Mine are going to be added to my shelf of cute little things instead!

If you would like to give one of these kits a go, they are available from Modes4u.
