Wally I started with polymere clay. I love that stuff. You are making wonderful tikis. It's good that you are using the colored clay. I used the brown or white clay and painted it after it baked. The Liquitex Glossies I used reacted with the clay and turned into sticky fly paper. It took a couple of years but I found that concrete sealer would seal it and take away the stickiness but what a lot of work. The bowls I was making back then were too large to use the colored clay. You are perfect using it for necklaces. Good job. Wendy-danlovestikis

I know polymer is used allot for prototyping etc. and to get scanned into a computer as a mackette (sorry about the spelling) Polymer should not be used for food, or as anything that might end up in one's mouth, because of the plastisizers used in the compounds. When coating it, water based products are best. I do love the versatility of the medium though. Sculpt time not withstanding, I can go from concept to finished piece in hours instead of days, dovetails great with my attention span.

Well, here's a suffering bastard....He's not smiling....although I'm partial to making the "toothy" ones.
