Metal Clay and Polymer Clay

Introduction

I'm starting this page to introduce polymer clay or metal clay tutorials because I want to share my love for these clays.  I usually create jewelry but the list is endless as to what one can create with polymer clay.  Metal clay is more limited as it is usually used to create jewelry.
