      I wanted to take a moment and introduce myself to the group. My arm is in a
      sling so I will make this very short.

      My name is Maria and I have been working with polymer clay for a couple of
      months. I find it to be wonderful medium with endless possibilities. I
      hope I can contribute and learn from the members of this group.

      Thank you.

        Hi Everyone. I am Barbara and I live in North Wales. I am just
        starting out on this hobby. i want to make figures and food ect for
        my dolls house. I have today made a doll from a kit I bought, it came
        with the head and cerall therma clay. I managed to do the arms body
        and legs not to bad, but when I baked it it still feels rubber I have
        baked it twice. when I tried a pieace of fimo and made a samll orange
        and that baked hard. Have you any idea what I have done wrong.

            Hi there and welcome. I'm along the south coast in Dorset, but Margaret Reid
            also lives in Wales - somewhere!!

            I've done several things with Creall Therm, but I've never had it still feel
            rubbery after it's been baked. Are you sure you baked it at the right
            temperature and for long enough? I really don't know what to advise there.

            As for doll moulds - I know Sue Heaser sells some through the Polymer Clay
            Pit. http://www.heaser.demon.co.uk and
            http://www.heaser.demon.co.uk/products/Kits/dollmoulds.htm#Hair is the page
            at her site with the doll moulds etc. She also sells all the usual (and more
            unusual) clay supplies as well - very reasonably priced IMO. No affiliation,
            just a satisfied customer!

            I make jewellery so don't really know of anywhere else over here that does
            the moulds. Hope that's helped a bit though.

              Good Morning,

              I'm new to this list. My name is Theresa Siebert, and I'm from South
              Africa.

              I'm addicted to polymer clay, although I have to confess that I am a
              total beginner. I have worked mostly with Sculpey, Fimo and Cernit,
              and have created pieces for my miniatures, and doll houses. I have
              tried my hand at sculpting dragons...or rather I tried to sculpt a
              dragon, but it turned out completely wrong, and so I have given up on
              sculpting altogether.

              I look forward to learning a lot for the members of this list, and I
              hope that in time I may be able to contribute also, in some way.
              Kind wishes,
              Theresa Siebert

                And very welcome, I hope we can be of some help to you - anything you
                need to know, just ask - you can bet there's someone here who's had a
                similar problem and either knows how to solve it or knows someone who
                knows someone who'll point you in the right direction.

                I hope you know about such places as Glass Attic - the fount of
                almost all polyclay knowledge...

                http://www.glassattic.com/

                Enjoy yourself - that's what it's all about!

                    Hello Kira,

                    And welcome.

                    The most likely source of PC products in the UK is Sue Heaser's
                    Claypit - she stocks a wide variety of clays including both
                    Translucent Liquid Sculpey and Fimo DecoGel liquid versions....
                    http://www.polymerclaypit.co.uk/

                    Alternatively, if you just want any of the Fimo range, including FDG,
                    try 'All About Crafts' who have an online purchasing system....

                    http://www.allaboutcrafts.co.uk/acatalog/

                    Other online craftshops often sell Fimo and/or Sculpey3 (eg
                    Hobbicraft at Leeds http://www.hobbicraft.co.uk/ )- but, as far as
                    I'm aware, Sue's place is the only source of more specialist
                    varieties (Premo, Creall Therm etc)

                    Good luck and best wishes over here, Alan

                      Hi Kira

                      I got my present batch of liquid clay from polymerclayexpress.com.
                      They're based in the USA, but some things can work out quite cheap from
                      them. I bought 16fl oz of translucent liquid sculpey from them about six
                      weeks ago. It came in two tubs, and was about £14.00GBP including the
                      postage.

                              Hi all,

                              I have just been introduced to 'Fimo' and am looking forward to tips
                              and suggestions on things I can make with it.

                              A bit about me:
                              I am a 39 year old, stay-at-home mother of 2 boys, the eldest has
                              left home and is now married and my youngest is still at home bugging
                              me j/k. I like to think of myself as 'arty' and enjoy graphical art,
                              drawing, reading, and metaphysical pursuits.

                              I hope I haven't bored you yet and hope you don't mind me asking
                              loads of questions as I have never used Fimo before and haven't the
                              foggiest how to use it.
