In previous post we talked about what is polymer clay and how to condition polymer clay fast. Now we move on to polymer clay safety tips. In general, polymer clay is non-toxic, but that it is advisable to take some precautions, “just in case”.

Polymer clay is a made of plastics known as PVC (polyvinyl chlorides), PVC is a product that can take many shapes and forms. It can be hard and rigid, or soft and malleable. Polymer clay is different from earth clay because the compound of the clay is pre-colored. You can purchase different colors of clays and mix the colors into any color you can imagine. Polymer clay is firm and hard when you first buy it. It requires a little kneading to make it pliable enough to shape – or also known as conditioning. Usually the length of time it takes to conditioning is based on the brand of your clay.
Ever wonder how to condition polymer clay fast? Softening clay also known as conditioning clay is the process that makes polymer clay ready to work with. Clay conditioning is usually done by twisting, stretching and twisting again the clay with your hands until it reaches a good working consistency. The warmth and pressure from your hands changes the clay’s texture, making it pliable to work with. Depending on the brand, polymer clay will be more or less stiff at the beginning, and it gets softer as you condition it.
