i tried to do some beads last weekend. nasunog! :( i baked it for 30 minutes. baka napataas yung temp ng oven ko. wala kasi temp na nakalagay dun sa dial kaya peg ko na lang na sa 3rd line. :P

i'm a beginner. as of now, nag concentrate muna to make the beads (necklaces). Later, i'd like to make
animals or decor. So practice and practice muna.

^nope.  you need a convection oven, the one with temp dial.  some uses turbo broiler.  kailangan mo din ng temp clock, para sure ka sa temp ng oven mo.

if you are looking for clay, go to diovir.  They have a branch in SM manila.  I buy all my clay stuff there.  Nasa 5th floor young diovir.  Hope that helps. :D

I love polymer clay!  Been contemplating about taking a seminar about it!  I'm into beading and I think it would be a good addition to my hobbies.

there was an episode on kabuhayang swak na swak wherein they mix cornstarch and glue to make clays. i dont know the proportion of the cornstarch and glue. they use it as a substitute for polymer clay. cheaper!

I attended one of the polymer clay workshops and recommended is yung oven WITH temperature control. Not just an OVEN TOASTER kasi minsan hindi mo macontrol yung temperature ng Toaster lang.

I've been getting a lot of emails over the years, so I hope this helps.

WHAT IS POLYMER CLAY?

Polymer clay is an oven-baked material that you can mold or sculpt into anything under the sun. It comes in a rainbow of colors which you can mix into limitless color possibilities. Polymer clay is sold under different brands, all of which have different characteristics. Which brand to use will depend on what your project is.

Unlike other clay materials (earth, air-dry, toy modeling clay), polymer clay cures in the oven. Much like baking cakes and cookies, baking polymer clay is an exact science. It needs a specific baking temperature and baking time. Set the temperature just a bit too low and you’ll end up with a brittle piece. Set the temperature a notch too high and the clay will boil or burn.
