Annie Bella's Creative Paperclay Tip for August

Creative Paperclay is one of the most versatile products I have ever used.  Not only is it easy to sculpt it is very easy to shape.   If you want to make something with it that is rounded or has a particular shape it is easy to do.  For instance if you want to make a mask simply roll out a thin layer of the clay to the size of the mask and lay it on the inside of the mask.  When it dries it will maintain that shape.  If you want to make sometime even more rounded like a candle holder or bowl, you can shape a thin layer of the clay around a balloon.  When it dries it will maintain that shape and can be cut and sanded afterwards.

I've used paperclay for quite sometime and use lots of methods for molding it...but I LIKE that balloon idea!
