I don't have polymer clay , we use something called m - seal, which is a white epoxy compound.
Very nice! Did you paint the wings too, and use epoxy clay for those as well?
Isn't it frustrating though to use an epoxy putty since it keeps wanting to harden? (I assume this is the same kind of stuff we can buy in our hardware stores that's used for repairing plumbing, leaks, etc.)
You might really want to try polymer clay instead though, or one of the other air-dry clays. If you're in India, I've read these things about its availability there so you should be able to buy it:Buying polymer clay in India is not a difficult proposition nowadays. It is easily available, and you can walk into any of the shops that sell handicraft items and buy it. You can also buy polymer clay at a toy store or a shop that sells things of children's interest. Some of the brands available in India are Fimo and Sculpey. These are just two brands; there are others . . .
In India today, polymer clay is undergoing a surge in popularity. It is much more widely available here than it was a few years ago. It is easily available in local craft stores, art-supply stores, and bead stores. In fact some of the toy stores and general stores in most of the Indian cities also carry polymer clay, although the selection of colors is sometimes limited. The various manufacturers may offer different brands (lines) which are a little different in softness, strength, and so on, and each (line) offers its own selection of colors. Polymer clay is generally available in small and large packages . . .
Two Indian polymer clay teachers are listed at PolymerClayCentral too, though only one shows an e-mail address... you might be able to ask them about suppliers too:http://www.polymerclaycentral.com/teacherindex_international.html
Also, many countries will mail order polymer clay and supplies to various other countries. Check out this page for some of those:http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/supplysources.htm

I used acrylic to paint the fairy....I'm not too happy with the finishing, would a coat of white glue help make it look a little better.
I don't know if giving the acrylic paint a glossy (or glossier) finish would be better since it's hard to see the little figure very well. But if you want
to do that, you could use a permanent white glue thinned down 3 or 4 to 1 with water, or you could use various other clear mediums like water-washup gloss polyurethane (from a hardware store), or gloss acrylic medium (craft or art supply store), or clear acrylic fingernail polish, or Klear and other cyanoacrylate floor polishes (which are pretty much the same as "Future" in the U.S.), or various other things. The polyurethanes and Klear-Future are harder and less scratchable than some of the other possibilities though, if that matters.
You can read much more about finishes
that are good to use on polymer clay on this page:http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/finishes.htm
(Since you're putting the finish over acrylic paint, you could even use a petroleum-based "enamel" sealer where that's not a good idea directly on baked polymer clay and possibly on epoxy clays.)
I'm primarily a crocheter but i spent three days on making this one and I can't stop looking at it!
I think that means you should do a lot more sculpting!. . . whether it's with polymer clay or any other kind of clay.
You might also want to look into making polymer clay buttons
for your crocheted items (functional ones, or just for embellishment):http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/buttons.htm
...or look into doing lots of other things with polymer clay, if you get it, besides sculpting too!http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/contents.htm
