First Experience With Clay: I am 17 years old right now and have been working with polymer clay for years! It was really weird how I started using polymer clay, it was almost like it was meant to be. I went to Michaels, where I currently work and teach, and I was looking at some clay, (this was when I was 10ish) and thought that my parents wouldn't let me use it because it would be too much work baking every figurine I did, so I put it back. That Christmas my mom bought me a starter kit! It was like it was meant to be!
