I don't have a kiln or anything but I really want to make something with clay because I think I could make something very cool. A solid clay head would be too heavy but is there anything easy to sculpt and make into a mask?

Cheetahclub67, You don't need a kiln for polymer clays. An oven at 250 ( for sculpey, I think 275 for filmo ) and any glass pan you can dedicate for clay use only. Wouldn't what to cook out of the pan afer you use it for clay. And because the temp is low you can back over cardboard forms and even use newspaper to 'fill' projects.

To make something durable I'd use Super Scupley 3. The cheaper ( stuff they sell at Wall mart ) tends to be more chalk like than PVC pipe.

Not necessarily Cheetah. You wouldn't want to make solid poly objects, you should always use something inside and just have a thin outer layer of poly clay. Then it goes a long way. Plus it doesn't crack if its thin when its in the oven.

Its not that expensive Cheetah. I recently bought some Sculpey 2 ounce blocks for 99 cents. Also when making stuff I tend to making it on index cards and then put the index cards right in the oven, that way I dont have to devote a special dish to sculpey.
