Polymer Clay

Polymer Clay is very easy to work with.  Above are samples of what you can do with them.  You can mix colors to get a unique pattern, layer them, combined precious metal or metalic powder to give it a sheen.  I have notice that certain brands work differently.  Kato may be harder to kneed than Sculpey.  There really isn't any guess work with either after they are baked. Recently I experienced my polymer clay getting hard.  If your clay gets hard, you can revive it with vasoline.  Try a little at a time.  Little can go a long way.  Chop up your clay and kneed it with the vasoline.  You also can use a hair dryer on high hot to soften it.  Some have used other oils like baby oil.  I was thinking of using my safflower oil.    

If you used an air dry porcelane clay you will never know how much your shrinkage will be.  Porcelane may also crack or curl up while drying.  I think there needs to be a conditioning so it will cooperate better.
