Polymer Clay: What is it? and who is using it?
It seems there has been a recent explosion in DA users who are now using polymer clay as a medium for their deviations. To help out curious users who might be interested in what this medium is, how it works, or where they can get it I thought a NEWS article should be made. I shall also showcase some deviations made with polymer clay. The data below is compiled from HanaClayWorks (https://www.deviantart.com/hanaclayworks) polymer clay FAQ and my own FAQ :bulletred: What is polymer clay? -Polymer clay is actually not clay at all.

Why? What's the point in copying photographs? I'm not trying to be annoying or rude, I am honestly curious because I used to do that as a kid and grew tired of it very quickly.
JoannaMoory's avatar
I guess it is a test to oneself, how good can you get.
I myself don't feel that I'd be quite good enough yet for anything more complex and imaginative, so I practise by drawing with a reference photo.
For me that is the point and I admire people who obviously are good at it. I also admire people who can make paintings and drawings with something extra; something that makes one think and feel. But this is not an article about them :) .
afireintheforest's avatar
Thank you for replying, I still feel very confused about the meaning of all of it, and of it being a test. I think realistic drawing based on photographs it's just pointing what's obvious and leaving little to creativity, art and illusion. But thank you very much for trying to explain, I apreciate it. Take care.
JoannaMoory's avatar
You too, I'm sorry for not being able to explain it better.
But I think much of it is a question of taste. Some people just like to see something photograph-like done with pencils (or other media) and some prefer things more abstract :) .
Same with music; heavy or pop. You cannot fully explain your taste to someone with a completely different point of view.
Or cats and dogs :D . (I like both, though. :D )
afireintheforest's avatar
I agree with you on that point, but I don't think it is just a matter of taste. I did realistic, photograph-like portraits for two whole years. At that time, I didn't know anything about art (not that I know much now), nobody taught me about it and wasn't curious enough to find out by myself. I liked the classics only, and couldn't care less about modern painting, about expressionism, cubism, dadaism, futurism or anything that envolved real emotion, sweat, tears, blood, you know, to me painting is a really raw and dirty thing, just like poetry. It was only when someone slapped me on the face that I started to realize what I was doing, and what a wonderful world of art I had in front of me. What colours, what textures! The challenge to me is to understand myself and what's in my sight field, to know, to create. My teories might be very simplistic, but I believe in them truely. I am really curious, just like a cat (that I prefeer to dogs, actualy, ;) ).
