Introduction An artist, designer and teacher in Singapore, Garie is a self-taught clayman. He has been making models from Plasticine since he was a child. Since his discovery of the versatility of Polymer clay in the early 1980s, he has created lots of clay miniatures for his own children. Garie created the world's smallest teddy bear and other smallest item in polymer clay, tested the clay in water and combined it with other materials like magnets, film spool, ping-pong balls etc. to create toys, gifts, jewelry and crafts. Garie's years of research and experiments started the controversial technique of microwaving polymer clay and the technique of shrinking styrofoam with polymer clay to create clay containers. With Garie's experiments and testing of liquid clays , new techniques were created. Some of the new techniques were, liquid clay paints, realistic miniature cake that are added with baking soda and many others. Using polymer clay Garie also creates various types of Living Habitat for Ants, the ants successfully live up to its life span proving that the polymer clay is non-toxic to living things. information can be found on his website.
