Polymer Clay (sometimes accidentally spelled polimer clay) is an art medium that is known for its versatility, pliability and simplicity to work with. It is an oven bake modelling material composed of polymers, resins, colouring agents and fillers. Not a natural clay, it is man-made from a plastic, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) base. Polymer clay is used by artists and hobbyists ranging from children to professional artists and movie makers. It stays continually soft and can be baked in a home oven, retaining its colour and size. It is available in many colours, including metallics, glow-in-the-dark and "stone." It can be used to simulate many materials: stone, semi-precious stones, porcelain, wood, and glass.
