Thanks for your enquiry about prices for Allcrafts goods! The following pages list the products and price lists for the current range of Allcrafts products: Encaustic Art Wax Painting, Safe Soapcrafting, Bath Bomb Kits, Cold Porcelain, Tea Bag Folding, Glitter Faces, Wrap-it Kits and more.

The wax, origami and paper kits fit in very well together and provide craft projects suitable for all ages and abilities, as do the Soap and Bath Bomb kits. We have traders in Australia and New Zealand who regularly teach and demonstrate to schools, seniors homes and groups with special needs and requirements.

The Soap and Bath Bomb kits form part of the newly released $15 craft kit range for 1999. Allcrafts specialises in crafts that are new, different and interesting – with the advantage of being easy to learn! Additional crafts are being trialled during the year to add to the product line; these will be released at various times, once they have passed our stringent testing requirements.

Lists of local traders and distributors are available on request, to enable you to pursue the crafts through direct contact. If you may be interested in becoming a distributor yourself, please do give us a call. In addition, special prices on some items are available to schools and other organisations for fundraising purposes.

All of the goods are available by mail order, with new stocks being delivered regularly. Payment may be made by either cash, cheque or credit card.

Please do not hesitate to call us if you have any questions, or if you wish to enquire about becoming a trader; the toll-free number is (1800) 64 7884.

 NEWS: Safe Soapcrafting -
   With Melt & Mould Soap!

Glorious and addictive craft fun coming your way..... Glycerine Melt & Mould Soap is so easy - you just melt in a double boiler over a low heat, add colours and fragrances, pour into a pretty mould, and use as soon as it’s set! What could be simpler than this safe soapcrafting - no harsh chemicals, no high temperatures, no complicated procedures - and any mess just cleans up with a damp cloth - after all, it’s soap!!

Glycerine Melt & Mould soap is an all-vegetable transparent soap base. With adequate supervision, even children as young as pre-primary age can enjoy this craft! For the experienced soapcrafter, Melt & Mould soap brings a new and added dimension to soap - no waiting around for curing times - pour this afternoon and use tonight! Melt & Mould soap is unscented, and is excellent for Aromatherapists, allowing the exact aroma blend to be mixed for a scented shower or bath! Teachers love this - it enables science and art to be combined! Soapcrafting is great for artists and sculptors too - the base is easily cut and carved with a knife! Mums love Melt & Mould - keeps the kids occupied for hours - and then the next day they can do it all over again with the same soapbase, as it’s re-meltable - mistakes become material for future soaps! Jelly moulds, candy moulds and ordinary household items become instant and re-usable moulds for the finished soap....

By combining colours and shapes, an incredible array of effects can be achieved - embedding different coloured soaps - even embedding trinkets for the over-3 age group, plus the addition of the scent of your choice brings you a wealth of unending craft fun!

For those who prefer handcrafted soap, Melt & Mould Castille Soapbase kit is a must – enjoy the benefits of a proper soap, scientifically formulated from base ingredients with all the natural benefits of a handmade soap.

Melt & Mould is packaged as a kit, containing the soap base, colour chips, fragrances, moulds and full instructions! Everything you need to get started, for the introductory retail price of $15 - plus a full range of supporting products is also available to enable you to either replenish your kit or purchase individual components.

Allcrafts’ Melt & Mould kits are part of the new $15 retail craft kit range for 1999.  Priced for giving.

Allcrafts. Because you can’t have too much fun! Enjoy your new craft!

 NEWS: Bath Bomb Kits – Easy, Fast, Fun!

You’ve seen them in the shops – huge, brittle hunks of wonderful-smelling bathtime delight…. Now it’s time to make your very own bath bombs.

This is one of the easiest crafts we’ve come across – even three year olds love making bath bombs – with a little adult help!  Great for schools too – see science at work!

Measure your basic mix, add some colour powder, a few taps on a fragrance vial to ensure your bath bomb smells just perfect – and then a light misting with a spray bottle – and your bath bombs are ready to mould.

It’s just like making sandcastles…. No wonder the kids love it! Pack the damp mix into a mould – there are some with the kit, but look round the house for all sorts of interesting shapes – jelly moulds, plastic cups and more….

Turn out onto greasproof paper as soon as the mould is packed, leave for 24 hours to dry, and your bomb is ready for bathtime!

There is some glamour glitter in the kit to make your bath bombs that extra bit special! Other variations to the basic bath bomb are easy – you can add milk, petals, oatmeal, almond meal, bath teas and more to make your bathtime special and perfect. And because our kit is easy on the pocket, it means that bathbombs are now an affordable luxury! You can make some to use and some to share and give as gifts!

The kit contains three scents, and there are plenty more available as refills. Alternatively you can use your own essential oil and aromatherapy blends, and add a little almond oil for extra moisturising effect….

Once you’ve made your own bath bombs in your own designs, colours and scents at a fraction of the cost of those available in the shops, you won’t want to stop! And of course, the fun goes on with refills for the kit, additional moulds, colours and scents.

Allcrafts’ Bath Bombs kit is part of the new $15 retail craft kit range for 1999.  Priced for giving.

 NEWS: Tea Bag Folding
What a wonderful name! Strictly speaking, this craft is miniature kaleidoscope origami. According to recent legend, a Dutch lady, Tiny van der Plaas, was short of a birthday card for a friend. As she pondered over a cuppa, she idly started to fold the ‘envelope jacket’ that her tea-bag had been packed in. Eureka, a new craft was born! In Australia, we have similar envelopes for some tea-bags - check out the Liptons fruit teas in small boxes and the Twinings teas in 10-packs. They aren’t much by comparison with the Douwe Egberts brand that Tiny used, although the Dilmah brand have some reasonably useful pictures, once again in the small packets. Cut out the squares, and you’re off to a great start.
Most designs require about eight squares to complete. However, before you have visions of drowning in an excess of tea, there are now sheets available (around 24 - 34 squares per sheet) that you can cut into squares. A large percentage of these are imported from Holland; however the range of Australian designed sheets is growing steadily.
If you can fold a piece of paper in half, then you can do this craft wiith ease! The folds are simple, and the finished squares are interlocked to obtain the lovely kaleidoscopic appearance. A few minutes with some scrap paper will give you sufficient practice to follow the diagrams correctly.
There are four instruction books currently available, with the text in Dutch. An English instruction book is scheduled for release at the end of August; also an English ‘companion issue’ to the Dutch instruction books is currently on the drawing boards. This will show examples of the folds with English instructions, referenced back to the relevant Dutch texts.
For those who need assistance in cutting straight lines, the ‘personal guillotine’ is available. This is a lightweight but robust tool, and has spare cutting blades. In addition, a circular cutter will allow you to vary the results of your folding, plus using wavy-edged scissors can give some spectacular results.
As a bonus, Tea Bag Folding fits well in with Sand Expressions, another Allcrafts product. Using a double-sided tape such as ‘Peel’n’Stick’, (also available from Allcrafts) the design can be cut out and stuck onto a card; the top release paper peeled away and then the coloured sands sprinkled over the sticky surface. The Tea Bag rosettes and shapes can be stuck on the card to complete the design. A lovely enhancement to kaleidoscope folding!
Tea Bag Folding, together with other unusual crafts such as Encaustic Art, Cold Porcelain, Tinsnips and Glitter Faces, is available either as kits or as single sheets from Allcrafts Goods & Services. There are local distributors in most states, and plenty of room for more distributors if anyone is interested in pursuing this fascinating hobby as a business!

 NEWS:   Cold Porcelain

Cold Porcelain is new to Australia. It’s as versatile as modelling clay, delicate as sugarcraft, and durable as true porcelain. Now you can make delightful models - from the tiniest petals to large sculptures -  without an oven or a kiln!

Cold Porcelain starts life as a packet of soft white paste, that dries in the air to a lasting, semi-opaque finish. Using your fingers, simple household tools, oil paints and varnish, Cold Porcelain can take you from a basket of exquisite flowers in an afternoon, to life-size models based around traditional armature supports.

A wide variety of people use Cold Porcelain - Wedding Specialists love it! Now the bride can have a model of herself and her new husband in their wedding clothes, a copy of her bouquet, the decorations from her wedding cake, napkin rings, place cards and so on - and her mum has a permanent corsage as a reminder of that special day!

Teachers love it! The use of polystyrene and styrofoam supports, together with the minute quantities of oil colour used, ensures that  Cold Porcelain is an economical addition to the curriculum.

Kids love it!  Safely non-toxic, Cold Porcelain is so easy to use that even pre-scoolers can get realistically fine details in their models! Budding sculptors can spend many happy hours creating with Cold Porcelain - which means that Mums love it too!

Craftspeople love it! From general craft workers to miniature makers, egg crafters, potters and sculptors, Cold Porcelain has something to offer everyone. Using specialised moulds and cutters, craftspeople can obtain high quality finishes to their models in a fraction of the time it would take to form each piece by hand.

Cold Porcelain is new, different and interesting - which is a trademark of the products distributed and sold by Allcrafts Goods & Services.  In addition to Cold Porcelain, Allcrafts products include Encaustic Art, wax painting using an electric iron; Sand Expressions, a craft suitable for all ages and abilities, using a die-cut sticky board and sand, glitter and foil; Tea-Bag folding, an unusual, origami-style of craft using small, specially designed papers; Safe soapcrafting using Melt & Mould glycerine soaps; and various Kids’ crafts, including Glitter Faces, Wrap-it and Colour-it kits.
