depending where you are (difficult to get Premo in the UK), is buying a
starter set of fimo soft. You can get both fimo classic and fimo soft
starter sets I believe. Although I still use mainly fimo classic, I am very
careful where I get it and 'test' it first. It can be exceedingly hard if
not stored correctly or if it is very old. And there is nothing worse than
hard fimo to put someone off from getting very far with polymer clay. Fimo
soft is a lot softer and better bet for beginners (but has an odd feel IMO -
probably because I'm now used to fimo classic). Fimo soft mixed packs come
with half blocks of clay so you get a nice variety of different colours for
Do follow Tan's advise and take a look at some of the projects that are out
there, or take a trip to Polymer Clay Central.
Hope that helps a bit, just holla if ya need any more help.
