I started with a paperclay but I didn't like the way it looked... Moved on to a homemade clay/play dough that I like. Making little mice for a project that I love... More to come on that!
I really enjoy making things from clay. I don't have a kiln so I bounce around trying to find a good substitute. The play clay that I make works great for crafts and I can make as much as I like.
I have made 10 paperclay animals and 4 clay mice. The paperclay animals are for another project now! As soon as they dry I can paint! That is when they come to life!
