What is Polymer Clay?
Polymer clay is a material based on Polymer Polyvinyl Chloride (known commonly as PVC). It's only called Clay because the texture and how it works resembles that of Mineral Clay.
What is liquid Polymer Clay?
Liquid Polymer Clay is made by the same companies that make the normal clay, but it's a liquid version. It can be used alone or with the normal versions.
What's the best brand of clay?
Honestly, I don't think there is a best brand but there are many different brands to choose from, the most popular being Sculpey III and Fimo. Here's a brand guide:
Fimo Classic: Exactly like Fimo soft, but harder. Takes more kneading.
Fimo Soft: Exactly like Fimo Classic, just easier to get workable.
Fimo Effect: Like Fimo Classic, but comes in awesome colours like glitter, stone and glow-in-the-dark!
Sculpey III: Not as strong as Fimo and easier to break when baked, but comes in a wider range of colours
