Thank you so much. She isn't my first... I haven't made many due to my limited time to sculpt... she may be my 20 something..... My absolute favorite clay is Prosculpt Polymer clay. I buy it directly from Jack Johnston instead of ebay. I've been told that ebay sellers "sometimes" sell older bars that are not so easily handled.
Thanks a lot for the tip, unfortunately, I can't find Prosculpt where I live ! We have Fimo, Cernit, and sometimes Premo Sculpey.... Do you use a totally opaque clay or mix your clay with a translucent clay ? Good luck for your future projects ! Cheers !
oh that is too bad.... could you possibly have it shipped there?? No I do not mix anything with it. I love their colors and their transparency... I know a lot of other artists' out there do mix something with Prosculpt but I haven't found a reason to do so. I have used their Caucasian flesh, Light, and Baby....yet to try their Ethnic Brown (have some on hand - can't wait to try out).
Three of the greatest things about this clay is that it is stronger then the ones of mentioned (except for Cernit - never tried that), it is ready to be used pretty much out of the package (you don't need to condition it almost at all - love that) and I find it much easier to sculpt with (especially for details - hard enough for details but soft enough not to kill your hands).
Please don't hesitate to ask away.... I am also still learning.... but I can certainly try to help you as best as I can.
