Polymer Clay - This Mother's day brand new crafty hobby

I don't know how many of you use and enjoy polymer Clay , so as part of my growing interest in this technique I asked Iris Mishly to give us a glimpse and introduce us to Polymer Clay ! :) BTW - the timing is perfect as mother's day is just behind the corner....

Iris Mishly is teaching & developing polymer clay techniques for the past 10 years, so there was no better expert to invite over here...

Polymer Clay unique Ink technique

so, If you haven’t yet tried it, polymer clay is a pliable colorful medium used among crafters to create handmade beads, jewelry and home decoration.

Simple techniques - quick results! 30 minutes in your home kitchen oven and you get a beautiful final piece!

The variations are endless – from millefiori canning to faux ceramic, alcohol inks & stamps or textures – almost anything can be used on polymer clay.

The most popular polymer clay brand names are FIMO (European) & Premo by Sculpey (American) which offer an elaborated variety of colors & effects – shimmery, glittery or plain. 

Most of them can be purchased in craft stores such as Michaels & Hobby Lobby (USA) or by ordering online and they are sold in small packages of 2 oz (56 grams).


Exploring Polymer Clay is a great opportunity for quality time of mother and daughter (or son!), grand mother and daughter – fun creations that will last a lifetime.

Which technique to choose?

Millefiori is a wonderful & easy technique to play with layers of clay wrapped together and sliced like sushi rolls – these rolls usually create an inside picture such as jellyroll, flowers, kaleidoscope, geometric or even roses and butterflies!
