Welcome! We hope you'll enjoy this quick video series on the essential things you need to know to be confident and ready to start creating with polymer clay with less time wasted, less money invested in tools you don't need, and loads of tips and tricks from over 60 years of combined experience!


Kira has been sculpting since she was a child, her first experience with Sculpey was creating a little horse when she was 10! She went to art school and became a potter and an educator with a BW in Art Education and several years of teaching experience and then re-discovered polymer clay for jewelry making and sculpting.


Ilysa has been working with the clay since she discovered it in NYC. She began caning and never looked back, earning awards such as Best in Show and travelled the country showing and selling her art for 10 years.

We started Polymer Clay TV on YouTube in 2007, wrote our first book Polymer Clay Art Jewelry in 2013, hosted the first of many Polymer Clay Adventures in 2015, opened CreateAlong tool shop in 2015, and we just keep creating.

If you enjoy this quick overview, we know you will love our in-depth course which includes EVERYTHING you need to know, including video demonstrations and several bonus classes, Polymer Clay Academy.
