Fimo Classic flexible
Fimo Soft flexible
Premo Sculpey flexible
Sculpey III weak brittle
BakeShop is brittle

Cernit is hard but brittle

Filani is very flexible

Kato very hard but brittle
Pardo is flexible but cracked after a
few bending

Test shows that Sculpey III, Bakeshop, 
Cernit and Kato are brittle. As for Pardo 
it cracked after a few bending. At 2.0mm
Filani is the most flexible beside

  1. Kato would be less brittle if baked at higher temp, as package instructions say.
