Fine Art Medium | Polymer Clay

Polymer Clay

Like traditional clays, polymer clay is soft and pliable in its raw state and hardens when heat cured. This sculpting material consists of polymerized particles dispersed in a variety of plasticizers and pigmented with color.

Relatively new as a fine art medium, polymer clay has a history mere decades long. Extremely labor-intensive when used to its full potential, polymer clay is inspiring artist innovations and finding its rightful place as fine art, now part of the permanent collections of the Museum of Art and Design in New York, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
