First Experience With Clay: I discovered polymer clay while talking to my customer who bought one of my hand-painted silk scarfs and wanted to have a matching scarf buckle. I went to the craft shop, bought my first two blocks of Sculpey, and on that day my polymer clay journey began! I have been playing with polymer clay for several years now. I love working with this amazing material and sharing my discoveries with others.
