October Tip from Rachel Whetzel

One of the things I love about  Creative Paperclay®, is how quickly it dries on low heat in the oven. Once in a while, though, I like to create molds for my  Creative Paperclay®. Lots of us here on the  Creative Paperclay® team like to use the clay in molds. Thing is, the clay doesn't dry as well when it's smooooshed up against a non porous surface. My solution is to use Amazing Mold Putty when I make my molds, which can be heated up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. That way, I can heat my paper like I do when I DON'T mold pieces... and my mold won't melt. Being able to heat your mold helps your clay dry in a timely manner, and makes for speedier projects so that this:
Can become THIS, with very little wait time.
