My friend and I took an Epoxy Clay class this past weekend. This is my first time using any type of clay. The results were less than stellar. I don't know if polymer is easier to work with than epoxy or if it was because we weren't given any tools to use - just told to shape a pendant and earrings with our fingers but the final product kind of looks like play-doh with some crystals on it. I think it would have looked nicer if we were given stamps for the surface or more cutting or shaping tools but with our fingers and a plastic sheet, it was hard to get the fingerprints out and to have clean shape lines.
This may not be my medium... But I'd still like to try polymer clay.
