I spent hours and hours and hours reading all the information I could find online about this fun craft.
Google "polymer clay" and there are terrifically informative tutorials that generous folks have shared. Read about all the mistakes they made and you can avoid some of your own!
YouTube has some of the best tutorials available. Have you spent any time there? iris mishly and Pandora are two of my favorites.
Pinterest also is a great source of ideas for designs.
keep on having fun!
