Polymer clay and Summer heat

Polymer clay and heat are not doing well together.

Sculpting with polymer clay in the summer heat. Difficult! 

I changed my usual polymer clay mix and put the figure in the fridge for five minutes whenever it becomes to soft. But maybe it would be easier to just use air drying clay or work on my wollies. :-)

Hello Christine,
Once again the movement in the figure is amazing.
Big hug

Another wonderful figure who does not pose still. I love them.
The trouble with air=drying clay is that it shrinks while poly-clay stays the same size.
Hugs, Drora

Thank you, Giac!
Yes, that´s true, Drora. That´s why I only used it on bigger animals, so far.
