Very often, to start a business, you need to come up with something that will distinguish you from other market players that will set you apart from the rest.
For quite some time I worked as a manager of the continuing education department at one of the Kaliningrad production enterprises. Despite the fact that the work was quite interesting and well paid, I wanted to start some kind of my own business. In 2009, it was just such an opportunity that turned up for me – because of the crisis, our company was closed, and all personnel were fired. This was a strong impetus for starting your own business.
As I already mentioned, I live in the Kaliningrad region, which is a tourist region, so I began to look towards business with a tourist bias. In our region, a large number of entrepreneurs are engaged in amber souvenir products. I also decided to try myself in this direction. A batch of souvenirs was purchased, a point of sale was opened in one of the resort towns.

Handwork (hand-made) has always been appreciated. This is a way to get something unique, creative – something that no one else has. The most common material for creating handmade products is polymer clay. We already wrote how to make such material at home (see Business on polymer clay).
However, you can not only make polymer clay and sell it as a separate product, but you can also create various things from this material. From it you can make decorative ornaments (jewelry), key chains, photo frames, Christmas decorations, dolls, figurines and generally any things that can come in handy for creating home comfort.
Polymer clay (plastic) is a soft material based on polyvinyl chloride. It is initially plastic and soft, so it can be molded from it like from plasticine. When the product is given the desired shape, it is heated, due to which it hardens and becomes hard. Some types of material harden without heating, just under the influence of air. When creating things, you can immediately use colored clay or just paint them after manufacturing, when they harden. Any acrylic paint will easily fall on it. If the crafts are not subjected to frequent blows and other damage, then they can retain their “presentation” for a very long time. Continue reading
Decorative and applied art is something that many people live or are simply fond of. Creating jewelry, crafts, souvenirs – can serve as just a hobby, and a way to earn money.
Today, one of the most popular materials in decorative art is polymer clay. It is also called plastic, since it is a very flexible soft material that hardens at a certain temperature (usually from 100 to 130 degrees, depending on the manufacturer).
