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.

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.

Wow, so many beautiful works!
and the new challenge group looks interesting

for the AQUAshare, I'd like to share this piece from AstaQte called Fresh breeze at the night
 the sky and landscape is really beautiful
also I like the little story in its description about the girls^^
Fresh breeze at the night by AstaQte

And I also found one in my own gallery depicting the local astronamic observatory and its star gazing event.
(is it ok to share both other artist's and my own work here? if not, I'd like to give priority to AstaQte's painting above)
