When you pick up a package of polymer clay, you’ll find that there’s not much information on the label. There’s no ingredient list, no “best practices” discussion, no way to solve problems when things go wrong. There’s also no information to help you learn about polymer clay as a medium for creating art. You can work with clay for decades and not know how it really works. Wouldn’t it be great to have a textbook where you could learn about polymer clay?
Polymer Clay Essentials eBook
I wrote a book specifically to address this gap in polymer clay instruction and knowledge. You’ll find the answers to all your questions about the material itself. How long to bake? How do you condition polymer clay? What’s the difference between Fimo and Sculpey? Is it toxic? Can you mix brands of clay? How durable is this stuff? And this is just the beginning of your questions, I’m sure!
The Polymer Clay Essentials eBook is Information for All Clayers. From advanced beginners to seasoned expert, you’ll find there’s lots to learn about polymer clay and this book teaches it! weighing in at nearly 100 pages, this eBook has the following chapters:
- Chemistry of Polymer Clay
- Choosing a Clay Brand
- Liquid Polymer Clay
- Storing Polymer Clay

- Cleaning Up
Not About Techniques or Projects
If you’re curious about learning techniques or projects, this book will help you understand them better. But you won’t learn them here. I don’t discuss making canes, fairies, mokume gane, etc. Don’t worry, though, there’s still plenty to learn about polymer clay! You’ll learn that you shouldn’t use water as a mold release for Fimo. And what a plasticizer is and why it matters to you. You’ll even find new ways to use liquid clay. (What is liquid clay anyway?)
For All Clayers
The subtitle of the book is “Information for All Clayers”. I truly do mean that. Everyone will learn something new here, even if you’ve worked with clay for years and years.

All clayers want to learn about polymer clay, and this eBook helps you do just that!
