Polymer Clay Table

Carefully arranged on this table are tiny sculptures and other objects made of polymer clay. Any one of them could fit in the palm of your hand; you would guess that none is longer than 3".

I've enjoyed working with polymer clay a great deal -- the medium has tremendous flexibility, and of course I love the bright colors. All of these were done with Sculpey III, except for the seal which was part Sculpey and part Fimo.

Polymer clay isn't a true clay, but a type of plastic. It's very easy to work with, and can be fired at low temperatures in a home oven. Techniques, uses and styles range through caning, beadwork, imitation gemstones, sculptures, dolls, 'paintings', miniatures, and much more. For more information, try the links below.

Because polymer clay is a plastic I have decided to stop buying it--with my many creative interests, I prefer to focus on projects that can use renewable or recycled materials that will breakdown someday. The only new polymerclay I intend to acquire is 'used' (or more accurately, abandoned/leftover) clay, as from garage sales. However, I will continue to work with the clay that I already have.
