Polymer clay was first invented in Germany by a doll maker named "Fifi". She developed a moldable material she called "Fifi Mosaik", which she used for sculpting doll heads in the 1930s.
In the 1960s, she sold the formula which was marketed as the brand "fimo". The clay was primarily designated for children's use.
But during the 1970s and 1980s, artists realized the possibilities of this colorful, versatile and forgiving medium; The beauty of this kind of clay is that you can bake it to preserve your creations.
Polymer clay is a very easy material for beginners. Most of us have played with modeling clay as children, and simple techniques such as making logs and balls are quickly recalled. All you need are your hands... and a pinch of enthusiasm!
