Polymer clay

Hi Friends,
Back after a small break..I have been busy with exploring clay arts..and today I am here with some facts about one of the clay type I have been working on..
I know I have been using this polymer clay word a lot these days and you might be wondering(many of them know abt it)what is it??

It`s a  modeling clay based on the polymer polyvinyl chloride.  It is modeled and baked..There are many companies like Sculpey,Premol and Fimo..who offer such clay.

See this bead..which has been used in this necklace made by me..

To make this bead..a cane has to be made out of that single white flower seen in the same bead..
Then a large cane of white flower is reduced into a small one .
This is cut into thin slices and a plain bead is covered by these thin slices...And then comes this beautiful bead in this necklace...
Making a cane is a quite a lengthy and hard process....

Hope you liked this small introduction to polymer clay and facts about the bead...
