It never hurts to ask but at the moment I might say no.

Polymer Clay 101

What materials do you use?
I use three brands of polymer clay: FIMO soft, Sculpey Premo, Cernit. Polymer Clay is a type of clay that you can bake in your own kitchen oven - and no, it won't contaminate the oven or food. I use acrylic paint to paint the eyes and other details of the sculptures.

Where do you get your clay & other supplies?
I get my clay & other supplies from craft stores here in Finland (as well as my supplies, though some of it I buy from Etsy).

How long does it take to make a sculpture?
That depends on how big the sculpture is and also on the amount of details. I'd say anything from 5 minutes to one hour, or more.

Where did you learn to make sculptures?
I made pottery items for 8 years at a local youth hobby center. We also made silver jewelry and other wonderful things there, I learned a lot. Working with normal clay taught me so much. After quitting the hobby (because of lack of time) I began to search for an alternative for the clay. I found polymer clay, tried it, and fell in love with it. With real clay I usually made BIG things (vases, plates...) but with polymer clay my usual sculptures are the size of a small coin.

Can you teach me?
You can find my YouTube tutorials here:…

Can you sell me this sculpture?
Many of the sculptures you see here at my dA gallery have already found new owners. I sometimes make replicas of the items you see here. You may send me a note to ask for more information.

Questions? Suggestions? Just note me.

Some other sculptures say it will contaminate the oven if you use it for both food and polymer. What do you have to say to that? *hands you a microphone* xD
