<<Can any one help me and give me a recipe to make polymer clay at home??>>

To my knowledge, the chemicals and equipment needed to make polymer clay aren't compatible with making it at home, or at least I've never seen any mention of it.

I agree with Anita, but if you mean the mixture of white glue and cornstarch type of modeling compound there are plenty of recipes on the net. If you google "Cold porcelain" or even "homemade polymer clay" you will get plenty of options. It has, however, nothing to do with polymer clay! Items made from any such compound will be prone to breaking or crumpling. Fun and cheap stuff for playing with the kids, but I wouldn't recommend it for making jewelry or items for keeping long term or even selling. Just my two cents.

Hi almuhtaseb, Sculpey is a company which makes several brands of general use oven cured (baked) polymer clay and also some specialty kinds of polymer clay.  Sculpey III is their bottom line general use brand. Few serious clayers use it because is is very mushy to work with and even properly cured (baked), Sculpey tends to shatter. I highly recommend Sculpey's PREMO brand, a brand that many clayers here also use. This link to the company products that may help you understand some of their specialty clays. http://www.sculpey.com/product_category/clay-lines/

Not sure where you are located. If you are in the USA, most big box craft stores stock PREMO. If you are outside of the USA there are a number of reliable company's we might be able to recommend, depending on your location. I don't know of a source in India, though there may be one. The following is a link to a USA company that can ship to many countries, though clay is heavy and shipping is expensive.  www.polymerclayexpress.com/ Then click on "clay" 

In case you are a beginner, I have a generic post here at PCC that I love to share with new PC-ers that lists my hints, best beginner book, curing info, sites to get beginning info etc. Here is a link to the most recent time it was posted. It’s gotten so long that I’ve split it into two posts. So please check out both of my consecutive posts.

p.1 is basic PC info

 You asked, " May u tell me what is the difference between air dray polemar and baked polymar? Which is better?"

We call one the generic name  "air dry clay" (a general category name that would include a number of kinds and brands.) It isn't really used here much at PCC, or maybe not at all and the other "polymer clay" (which is what we use here at PCC and is oven cured (baked).) I imagine which one someone prefers is just a matter of personal preference and what they want use it for. Air dry clay seems to be used in Russia and Europe more than it is in the USA. There is one kind I think called cold porcelain.

Hi almuhtaseb, How nice to meet a new clayer from Jordan! Happy to help! Helping exchange information about PC (polymer clay) is one of the main reasons this Polymer Clay Central Forum (PCC) exists!

I clicked on the distributor link you provided

http://www.istiklallibrary.com/modelling-clay

......and then clicked on "Premo -Sculpey Oven Baked Clay" and a list of colors came up. I don't know for sure, but it looks to me like they have the 24 colors of PREMO 2oz blocks, and a bunch of samplers that include the PREMO "Accent" colours.

Though I have never used them myself, PREMO "Accents" are an extended palette of colors, some jazzed up ones and fine to use, too. For info http://www.sculpey.com/product/premo-accents/

Happy Claying!
