Whenever you work with Creative Paperclay® use something else to build your base whenever possible. This way you will reduce the amount of clay that you use. You can make your clay go twice as far and still create some beautiful pieces. Your clay will also dry much faster. There are so many things that you can use to create a base on which to mold your clay, aluminum foil, wire, styrofoam, wooden dowels and even gourds, just to name a few. So the next time you start to create a piece made out of Creative Paperclay® make a rough base or body of the piece to be made and add your clay to that. You’ll be glad that you did.
