Getting folk together

More Creative Paperclay

The clay is very easy to sand, but like each of the others, it still feels softer as if not quite dry inside after three days drying.  All the clays must take quite a time to totally cure, possibly a week or more(?)

I quite like the shoulder hangers as they leave the body free to be positioned/posed how the fancy takes you and they are pretty much interchangeable between heads, costumes and types of character.

Hopefully with any further batches I’ll do the following:

  • Smooth them out a little more but still rely on sanding
  • Try to make the neck clay thinner

Generally I need to get better at handling the clays 😉
(and possibly not write blog entries that sound like “what I did on my holidays”?)
