Well, there are material ready out there too, ready to be own. Of course we will need to have tools and oven ready too, as polymer clay required baking process to be firm and hard. Another option beside using baked required polymer clay, we can try on air dry clay. As what it state, air dry, no bake require.

Google about air dry clay, suprise me, I found a recipe of homemade air dry clay!! Yeah! Why not try to use some homemade air dry clay before heading for professional air dry clay or polymer clay.
