Lets add some color to Creative Paperclay Tip By Gloriann Irizarry

August is in and today tip will be base on a question I been asked many times.
Can you add color to Creative Paperclay® Material?
Well the answers is:
Yes you can.
This material is so versatile you can sculpt is right out of the package or lets add some color to it.
Its easy you can use many mediums out there like:
Water Colors
or my personal favorite the Tim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol Inks
If you want to try to add color to your Creative Paperclay® start by adding some color to your paperclay. 
Open your favorite color of Tim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol Inks and add drops directly to your clay.
I do recommend to wear gloves while mixing the clay since the alcohol ink will stain your hands.
Mix has much color has you want. Remember the more colorful you want the more ink you need to add to the Creative Paperclay®
I like to color my clay when I'm sculpting masks, Art dolls  and Ball Jointed Dolls BJD
By adding the color directly to the Creative Paperclay® is simple. This step will save you  time by not having to color or paint it once your done sculpting your piece.
Have in mind the color of the clay will lighten up once it dry.
Look at these BJD torsos examples of already dry Creative Paperclay®.
The Creative Paperclay® used one on the left torso is lightly tint with Tim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol Ink and the started torso on the right is plain white right from the Creative Paperclay® package.
Sanding the tinted clay will not change the end color. Try it and feel free to share with us your results with us at our Creative Paperclay® Q&A Facebook page Click here to join us.
