Now that I have a few PMC items done and know a little bit more on how the materials work and the options for using the clay, I, of course, want to make more pieces!! I know the clay can be stamped with anything to create an imprint, but now want to make charms that I can sell or customize for someone else.
I went to my local craft store and sought someone that had some experience with PMC clay and molds (even though they don’t sell the clay anymore! grrr) Walked away with a box of mix-a-mold and proceeded (for the next few hours) to try to make it work….and trying not to pull out my hair!! The powdery mix combined with water kept giving me a lumpy dough like texture which is NOT suitable for mold making.
Soooo, back to the computer and more research, I found Amazing Putty….and its truly amazing!! This stuff is so easy to mix, imprint and definitely holds it shape and detail for whatever you use it for (clay for now….but maybe resin later!)
I’ve made a few molds and put the clay to work….now, to PATIENTLY wait for firing in a few days….. I’m certainly not the most patient person, but I’m crossing my fingers (and toes) that the outcome is worth the wait:)
