Popular polymer clay brands

There are many clay brands available, and there seems to be no end of debate in the polymer clay community as to which one is the best. Some people love one brand, while others will swear by another. Personally, I find that they all have their place. Each one has its own personality, and its own pros and cons.

Having said that, there seem to be three brands that are more popular, more widely available and more commonly used that the others. This section of the website will be focusing on those three brands: Kato, Premo and Fimo Professional. You'll find a comparison of the best uses for all three brands, as well as, in depth articles detailing the pros and cons of each.

For discussions on the less mainstream brands, such as Souffle, Pardo and Cernit, please have a look at the speciality clay section.
