Scott Radke is working with some special materials, his figures are both scary and facinating, even though not polymer clay, he is working with apoxy clay or magic sculpt, these are two part clays that cure in an hour or so, very interesting....(see photo)

Drawstrings in Motion has a great tutorial up on how to create a collapsible light box from foam core and posterboard that will only set you back about five dollars. Once you've taken your photos, the light box folds up for easy storage. http://drawingsinmotion.blogspot.com/2009/01/making-of-light-box.html
