|For when you need a needle|
Simply embedding the eye end off a fine needle in polymer clay will make a tool that will allow you to prick an area to release trapped air. Make the end of your needle tool large enough that you can easily find it in your work space and pretty enough that you won't mistake it for scrap clay. It only take a second to make one of these and they are more then work the time. Much easier to find than a needle by itself.
