Donna Kato and Polymer Clay
In my stumbling around using different art mediums, I have had the privilege of meeting and learning from some of the finest artists in their field.
Polymer clay (some call it Fimo the way you say Kleenex instead of tissues) is instant gratification. What you work with is what you get.
My absolute favorite teacher of the medium is Donna Kato. She calls me kiddo! LOL! Actually I think she calls almost everyone kiddo even though she is the same age as me. She sure doesn’t look it!
She even has a clay named after her – Kato Polyclay by Van Aken. How cool is that! It also happens to be the BEST polymer clay on the planet – easy to condition, holds firm in canes, is super strong after firing, least toxic of the clays. I have given away my other clays because I am now too spoiled with how wonderful Kato Polyclay is now.
When I grow up, I’m going to play even more with polymer clay. It will be my reward during our retirement years of leisure.
