    I got mine off of ebay, I would suggest you get a book on polymer clay first and it will tell you about some of the diffrent kinds of polymer clay. I am new at it too, but you can get polymer clay at any craft store I am sure. I use sculpty 3, if there is anything I can help you with just post it here or pm me :D

    Any craft store carys polymer clay.

    Very easy - each pack comes with instructions. Mold your clay into the shape you want, and bake it acording to instructions. I love pressing two or three colours together, keep rolling them so it's swirly looking, roll it in a line and cut, piercing holes in each so they make cool beads.
