Best Creative Paperclay Tools Tips by Gloriann Irizarry

It is finally Summer. The weather is getting nice and hot. Now I have been ask about Creative Paperclay and what's the best tools to use so I will be answering this question to full extend today. Feel free to visit our Creative Paperclay Q&A Facebook page if full of many wonderful Creative Paperclay artist always helping others with any question you might have about Creative Paperclay .

Rollers are the best way to roll a clay sheet.
It doesn't have to be fancy or expensive a simple old aluminum foil paper roller will work.
Has long the cardboard is thick it should do the trick.

Aluminum foil is wonderful to create nice armatures and it is easy to bend and shape to most desired shapes. You can keep in the sculpt or removed the paper after the clay dry.

Freezer paper is great to keep the clay from sticking on your working surface.
Lay a sheet on your working table and can be use to keep the clay from sticking when you roll the sheets of clay out.


Stainless steel wires and foam forms are one of my favorites to use to create armatures for paper clay projects. They will save you time and money.

you can also use regular object like water bottles and foam to create intricate shapes. 
The best way to keep them from falling apart is Hot glue. Now the trick is not to use high temperature but use Low temperature instead and let it fully dry so it nice and thigh.

Hobby knife and carving tools work great .
Any spray bottle can be recycle for you to use has a water clay mister

Paper tape is wonderful to create nice armature or use has fillers for your sculpt.



Flat brushes are my favorite to smooth the sculpt with water.

Now don't be afraid to try other tools like executers, texture plates or mold design or marketed for either polymer clay of cake fondant they work wonderful on Creative Paperclay . You will be surprise all the wonderful thing available out there for you. If you cant find a tool you like don't give up is always fun to make your own too.  Now the possibilities are endless all you need to do is let your imagination Fly.

I'm sure they're great tips. Too bad they're so hard to read due to the extremely poor English.
