Idea 1: Anti-lint Apron

Anti-Lint Apron

The idea is to allow the artist to remove fabric lints easily while making polymer clay. This is to avoid having lints trap in the clay. The velcro, sticky sheet from lint roller and fuzzy pads are all tools used to remove the lints. There is also a pocket for the artist to put other tools that he or she wishes to use.
