Polymer Clay Central
Characters of Literature

Charles DaPra, a High School Science teacher of 27 years, found a creative outlet with Polymer Clay. In his words...
"I love reading and trying to create faces of the characters I read about based on the author's description. Some heads become Christmas tree ornaments, others free standing.

I use the clay to try and interest my students in being creative. The motto I post and encourage my students to think about is the well-known quote from Einstein 'Imagination is more important than knowledge.'

Polymer Clay is the greatest medium to do what I enjoy. I wish I had discovered it many years ago."
