Since i thougt of covering some chopsticks with polymer clay, i'm wondering that if you would eat with the chopsticks, it wouldn't kome off or be poisonous? So my actual question is; would it be possible to cover the chopsticks with the polymer clay without killing someone?

You could cover chopsticks without killing anyone, but we just avoid contact with mouths or eating the stuff just in case a lot of that turns out to be harmful over time
So cover just the parts that won't come in contact with the mouth or food and chopsticks should be fine.

However, the material the chopsticks are made of may affect how you have to prepare them for covering (especially if bare wood) or whether they can be baked along with the clay or the covers would have to be "glued" on after baking the clay (some plastics can distort in temps we use, but many don't).
