Polymer clay is an umbrella term for a family of human-made clays that are pliable and soft until baked or heated, at which point they assume a permanently hard state.
Loved by a wide range of crafters, from kids and students to adults, polymer clay is a polyvinyl chloride compound combined with a plasticizer for flexibility and multiple fillers for color and texture. Along with its ease of use and brilliant colors, the clay can be formed into various shapes, such as beads, wall hangings, detailed miniatures and holiday ornaments.
As an incredibly malleable plastic, polymer clay can be shaped and reshaped several times without deterioration. Polymer clay can also remain workable even if it sits around for years — as long as it is stored away from direct sunlight and excessive heat. This medium cures at significantly lower temperatures than earthen clays and can be cured in a toaster oven or home oven.
Polymer clay is typically used to make craft jewelry and decorative parts and ornaments in commercial applications. You can even find pieces made from polymer clay in major museums today.
