Just curious as to what you all find to be your ideal polymer clay (or blend) for various applications. I'm trying out a few new combinations (for figure sculpting) and I'm curious as to what to avoid in terms of common errors as well as "Aha" moments. Thanks! Mike Barbour
Welcome to the IGMA Forum. For those of you interested in polymer clays suitable for miniature figure sculpting (and others too) there are up and coming new clays soon to be available. With the recent fears that the inclusion of phthalates could cause health scares they have, mostly, been withdrawn and, since phthalates make the clays plastic, have made many clays too soft and unusable. A real scare for those of us dependent on clay as it is . However there is good news and manufacturers have been listening to us all and, starting in May this year, new, hopefully better clays will be available. This should be good news for all clay users I hope
