Berry Crafty Guide { Polymer Clay }


Behold the third instalment of A Berry Crafty Guide series featuring the wonderful and sculpting world of polymer clay!

As found on the Polymer Clay Superstore page:
"Polymer Clay is an art medium that is known for its versatility, pliability and simplicity to work with. It is an oven bake modeling material composed of polymers, resins, coloring agents and fillers. Not a natural clay, it is man-made from a plastic, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) base. It is used by artists and hobbyists ranging from children to professional artists and movie makers. It stays continually soft and can be baked in a home oven, retaining its color and size. It is available in many colors, including metallics, glow-in-the-dark and "stone". It can be used to simulate many materials: stone, semi-precious stones, porcelain, wood, and glass."

Below are some great beginner tutorials, supplies, techniques and frequently asked questions (FAQs) to get you started in this versatile world of sculpting! Remember: you are only limited by your imagination!
