msbeaniac has joined the conference.

You have invited msbeaniac to view your webcam.

nefret111: am wondering why i don't see any of you all
over in the polymer clay central chats?
jfp76801: NJ I know the red is pearl. what is the
mousefingers1: I've never seen clay separate like
that. I do know that you have to condition it to get
the polymers to blend.  quote from glass attic "It has
been thought that the liquid plasticizer in polymer
clays would "settle" toward the bottom of the bar over
time, and that a lot of remixing was necessary to mix
it back throughout the clay to give the baked result
strength, flexibility, longevity and a smooth
appearance. .... questions have arisen though as to
whether all these factors are true, and whether
they're true for all the brands and types of clay
.....some informal tests have been done by clayers
(see some results in Tests), and some clayers have
asked polymer manufacturers to help clear this
up.<font face="Tim
