Want to learn more cool things to do with polymer clay? Polymer Clay 101 covers all the basics — tools, techniques, color mixing, mold making, sanding & polishing, etc. — in case you're a polyclay beginner. After that, 21 projects demonstrate major polymer clay techniques. We show how to do important things like Skinner blends and caning... but we also show some more unusual techniques like using an extruder for a filigree look, and carving baked clay. The 45-minute DVD shows each of these techniques in action — great for visual learners!



  • Big, clear photos show exactly how to do each step.
  • The spiral binding makes it easy to keep the book open to the appropriate page while you're working through projects.
  • The professionally-shot DVD demonstrates each of the book's techniques in a very clear way.
  • A wide diversity of projects means there's something for everyone: several jewelry & accessory projects (including buttons!), some home decor projects (like handles for your silverware), and quite a few gift-y items (journal covers, business card cases, and even a magnetic Tic-Tac-Toe game). It even includes instructions for materials you may not have used with polymer clay before — things like fabric, Amazing Mold Putty, and Magic Glos UV Resin.
