Polymer Clay: FAQ
THE CLAY:
Does it matter what kind I buy?
Yes, it matters what *kind* you buy, but it doesn't really matter which brand-- just whichever one is easier for you to work with. Make sure it's bakeable clay and not modeling clay. It WILL melt in the oven (For example, using non-bakeable modeling clay as a filler for larger sculptures may or may not result in said sculpture cracking/exploding and oozing hot, melted slime. …Not that I'd know that from first-hand experience or anything. Nonetheless, you have been warned). Some polymer clay brands are Fimo, Sculpey, Premo (I believe this is made by Sculpey), and Kato.
What's the difference between the different brands?
FIMO Soft—Soft, and sturdier when baked because it stays slightly flexible. The darker colors will stain your hands, but this can be washed off easily with some good dish-soap. Non-toxic.
FIMO Classic—Basically the same as FIMO Soft, but it's harder. Go figure. Non-toxic.
FIMO Effects—Cool

A little over 2 weeks until the Saga Comic Con!!  I'm so excited!!  I've got my table application in, so now it's just getting down to making my stuff.  I've got about 3 dozen character stickers drawn, some uchiwa fans, postcards and magnets, just need to print it all out in the quantity I need.

I have no clue how much I should expect to sell, so I'm just going to print about 15 for each, I can use this first time to judge for future cons.  It's going to be so much fun, a friend agreed to come with me and sit at the table to keep me company even though she doesn't want to sell anything, and some of my students that are also planning to sell at the con have requested for the table beside mine, so we'll be able to chat :D

I wish I had the time and patience to upload all the new drawings onto dA here, argh I wish they'd let us do batch uploads.  I have like, 50 pictures over on sta.sh but it takes so long tagging each one, categorizing them, etc.  Oh well, after the con I should have more time to update my dA....hopefully, haha.
