Polymer clay tutorials on youtube led me to fimo clay. I've produced some pleasing results with it without prior experience.
I've found the gloss varnish accessory useful to improve item robustness where kids are concerned. The varnish also improves looks.
Colours rub off onto hands during use and it's necessary to keep hands clean between using different colours to avoid transferring onto each other, especially when switching to white.
Apparently tiles or glass make the best work surfaces though so far I've just used glossy magazines and tinfoil. I'd avoid working directly on wood surfaces as its hard to clean off, and its also important to have clean surfaces to avoid contaminating the colours.
