How To Make Polymer Clay Firmer

Did you just go out and buy a whole mess of clay blocks, your mind wandering with wild abandon about what you're going to do with it? The you get home, bust em open and your creative possibilites are soured after realizing,"I can't do anything with this mess!" For whatever reason polymer clay has been increasingly overloaded with plasticizers, making it too sticky and soft to work with. Plasticizers are usually some kind of modified vegetable oil added to products to increase their thermal stability, so in this video I'll show you a quick way to leach the excess plasticizer out of the clay to make it firmer.
