Poly-Dictionary and polymer clay basics

When i created PolyPediaOnline site, my intention was to make it comprehensive as possible, in my vision i saw artists and talented friends, discovering polymer clay, find everything they need to start their journey in polymer clay - how to start, important tools and materials we need without spending a lot of money right from the start, types of polymer clay, tips on how to condition, how to store polymer clay, how to bake, safety tips and information i have learned over time.

After these pages were ready i listed all the tools, materials, terms and techniques i know and prepared the Poly-Dictionary so that every person browsing the web, gooling or reading a tutorial will understand the terms and materials listed - What does "slicing" or "wrapping" means and what is "a plug", for example.

The list is not complete, but ready to publish, I'm sure i missed some terms but they will be added, I am sure this list may become handy to every polymer clay fan.

I will be happy to hear your comments and if there are missing terms or something needs correction - let me know!


  1. I think I did not see anything on needle tools (toothpick, skewers of any kind and tools to make holes after curing) or did I forget to read well?

  2. Needle tool and tooth picks are there under N and T (but forgot the skewer..!)
