Polymer Clay - Material that Can do Anything

I fell in love with polymer clay more than 15 years ago.

This material is absolutely amazing because it can be made to look like glass, metal, wood... you name it! Not to mention, it has many of its own unique looks.

The number of techniques for this relatively new artistic medium keeps growing. In fact, I myself love experimenting and finding the new ways it can be used.

Being a scientist by education, I work in a field that requires strict adherance to a procedure, with no steps aside allowed. That is why playing with polymer clay is such a wonderful creative outlet for me. I love sharing my findings in step-by-step tutorials and "how to" articles.

The pictures in my profile show my studio, in which a photocube plays the main role.

You do not need a lot of tools to work with polymer clay. An oven, a pasta machine, and a few basic tools (most of which are shown here in my pictures) - are all you need.

I also show here a few shots from my various tutorials and examples of magazines and books in which my work and articles have been published.

Welcome to Polymer Clay Tutorials!

Instructions for instant download of my tutorial files may be found in the Shipping Policy section.

In my shop, I usually maintain one or two tutorials of each kind I have. I re-list the ones sold shortly after they were sold. If you see a tutorial in my "Sold" section that you would like to purchase, either wait for a few hours and check back again, or contact me to let me know about your interest. I will be happy to re-list the tutorial for you and notify you when it is available.

Most of my jewelry, beads, and home decor items are one of a kind. Once they are sold, there will never be another one exactly like that.
