What is Polymer clay

Hi world. I am back with some polymer clay Tips. If you aren't familiar with polymer clay well, polymer clay is a oven bake clay. It is almost like play-do but it is oven bake clay that you can create things with. Usually I make little sculptures or charms for jewelry with it. I wouldn't recommend making big things with it because it usually comes in 2 oz packages. There are a lot of different kinds of clay that you can use. The types of polymer clay are, Sculpey,Craft smart, Studio, Fimo, Kato, and Cernit. A great beginner clay to use is craftsmart. This clay is the most lowest price clay at 1.49 dollars. This is available at any craft store.
