Even polymer clay that feels soft when you unwrap it still needs to
be conditioned. The process of conditioning polymer clay redistributes the
ingredients that may have settled during storage. If clay isn't properly conditioned your finished project may be weaker and

slices using a straight blade. Flatten and thin each slice with a clay roller,
fold it in half and repeat several times until it starts to become
