Description: This is special homemade cold porcelain clay that air dries flexible. When rolled very thin it is translucent and will not crack or tear unless it is stressed. Create unique and realistic flowers. The pedals will feel real, not plastic, foam or rubber feeling like other clays. This clay does not dry to a porcelain finish like the standard cold porcelain clay, so it will give the velvety appearance for pedals of a rose or silk look to daisies. It is true to its size, minimal shrinkage and holds texture well too. Paint the clay with oil paint, acrylic paint, markers or use stamp ink to color the pedals to your preference. You can color the clay by adding oil paint, or acrylic paint into the clay, it is a bit sticky when doing this so add cornstarch on your hands while mixing or wear rubber gloves. Leave sit for about 20 minutes to 1/2 hour before using. Coloring the clay will shorten the shelf life. Only add a cornstarch as needed. Too much cornstarch will dry the clay out quicker. I prefer to color as I go with stamp inks. This way the clay stays fresher longer.
Store: Store this clay wrapped in saran (plastic wrap) in a zip lock bag in a container. If stored properly, this clay can be kept for months. It is best to wrap up the portion that is not being used.
How to use: When making your flower pedals, place cornstarch on your work area and tools before rolling out the clay (apply more as needed). It may need a little more cornstarch as you go. You can roll out to a very thin consistency. Shape the pedal and place in a form to dry. For thin pedals, (example daisies) pinch the end of the pedal before applying to your bud. To apply to your stem, place a small amount of glue and form as needed. For larger pedals add wire to hold the pedal in the position you desire. The thicker the clay the more stability it will have.
Your 8 oz clay package will be made at the time of ordering and colored white. No color added can be made as well but will not take the color as well.
