How to Choose Your Polymer Clay
Generally, soft polymer clays are good for projects that don't involve extensive manipulation. Soft clays (like Sculpey III®) start out easier to work with, but can start to blend together and bleed once worked for a while.


Stiff polymer clays may start out crumbly when cold, but they manipulate well in the long run. This makes stiff clays superior to use for cane work.
