Home made polymer clay

Hi, everyone.
I'm new to this forum,
I hang out on the cooking forum quite a lot.
And mostly lurk on the Garden Junk forum,
Also the Mosaic forum.

Doesn't seem to be much going on here,
But I'm hoping some do read here now & then,
And can answer a question I have.

I am wanting to make some Christmas ornaments with ploymer clay.
Not only is it not available within a 50 mile radius of me,
It is pretty expensive,
If one is on a limited fixed income.
So I have been looking at recipes for making my own.

My questions is simply this:
Has anyone here tried it?
Do you have a recipe you prefer over others?
Is it harder, easier, whatever, to work with than the "real" stuff?
And most of all, how fragile is it?

Thanks for responding!
