Making your own pieces
Oven-bake, air-dry, or polymer clay. These also do not require use of a kiln. They either air-dry or are baked in a standard oven. Due to expense, they are best used for small items such as jewellery, ornaments, etc. The oven and air dry clays are similar in look and feel to normal clay. Polymer clay comes in many bright colours (kind of like play doh!), and can be made into beautiful designs which become plastic-like when fired.
