If your child enjoys reading about super heroes and watching super heroes on television, they may enjoy collecting super hero figurines. Instead of purchasing pre-made, commercial figurines, children can experience more excitement by making their own super hero figurines out of craft materials, such as polymer clay. Polymer clay super hero figures can also be baked in a conventional oven and customised with modelling paints.
