Texture Sheet

where to buy a polymer clay kit?

can u get one at a well known store? and how to make them...i need advice :D

There aren't really polymer clay "kits" except for a few that will have a few different colors of clay, plus a tool or two.
There are so many things that can be made with polymer clay though, and so many techniques and looks, that it's impossible to say which of those thing you might need for whatever it is you want to do with your polymer clay (and btw, for polymer clay many of the tools/etc can be found around the house or garage).

If you just want to buy a selection of colors of the clay in one package, Polyform carries a few under their line called Sculpey III, and the Premo line also has a few that come with a texture sheet or sheet of stencils (Shapelets), etc, too.
Be aware though that Sculpey III is one of the lines of polymer clay that is not the "best." It's petty soft (and softer when handled) and therefore won't do fine detail very well, and will also become brittle after baking in any areas where it's thin and projecting.
(SuperSculpey is similar, and original Sculpey is worse...BakeShop and Craftsmart and not good either... the "good" ones are Kato Polyclay and FimoClassic, followed by Premo and Cernit, with FimoSoft in between the good and bad.)

You can buy the few "kits" there are at many craft stores (Michaels, Hobby Lobby, etc), and sometimes art supply stores, hobby stores, and even educational kids stores.

You might want to check out some of my answers in these previous questions to get a ground in "beginner polymer clay," and also some info about basic tools and other tools and materials used with polymer clay in various ways (or ask another question and be specific about what you want to make):

Also check out at least a few of the pages at my polymer clay "encyclopedia" site for info about some of the tools:
