Sandee's suggestion

I cannot, in all honesty, say I am adept enough to give you any tips or tricks dear Creative Paperclay readers as this is a delightful new world to me. However as a beginner I can suggest things that I am learning, and hope there is someone like me, who is learning along side me.

I can suggest that you brush a little baby/talcum powder along the edges of your plastic molds before pushing them into the clay so they don't stick. It doesn't take much and makes a world of difference when lifting the molds from the Creative Paperclay.

If the clay adheres to the mold you might get results like this. The bottom part of the chin and mouth became distorted when I had to pull it from the mold because it was sticking, and the eyes are also stretched, making one larger than the other.
( I might have to use this in some Halloween project, it looks like a very scary clown face to me! )

When in fact it is suppose to look like a sweet little girls face, 
or at the very least a sweet little clown face?

Hopefully, you will be seeing her in my next post :)

Im glad you post your pointers. Some of us are not avid paper clay users either.. It's cool to know the dos and donts in advance.. saves me time and product in my own paper clay usage! Thank you!
