Default Changing from wood to poly Clay

Hi it's been a while since I have been here, over the last couple of years I have down sized to the point now I have no where to turn. I know it's sad but I think I just may be I n the process of fixing that. Just bought the Clay starter pack from pen state.
Is there anyone here making. Working with polymer clay?
I have a few questions what's the best brand to use?
What is the best finish?

Premo is the clay I have been using and a CA finish. Seems to work well and is durable.

I heard that premo is less brittle (when baked) than the "original" Sculpey brand.

I wanted to add...that I have not tried anything yet. This is just what I learned from YouTube. Enjoy!

I am interested in clay as well, but have no creative genes, just good at copying.

There are zillions of great YouTube videos, to instruct and inspire. I remember one that compared 10 different brands of clay, including several "foreign" brands.

There are videos on making flowers, skulls, butterflies, leaves, and on the various pasta machine rollers and other tools. It looks really fun.
