Polymer clay crafting tips:

  • Work with a high quality product like sculpey clay.
  • Use plastic wrap in an air tight container to store clay.
  • Score where you want two pieces of clay to stick together.
  • Shape cutters work best on a flat, solid work surface.
  • A craft oven is not needed.
  • Bake at low temperatures to allow the clay to set slowly and prevent cracking.
  • You can find clay of all kinds of different colors at Michaels stores.
