Preparation
  • Take out only the necessary amount of clay, wrap it in plastic wrap and knead it well. If it is stiff at first, warm it in your palm a little while. Place the unused portion of clay in a re-sealable bag and keep it in an air-tight container at room temperature to prevent it from drying up.
Molding
  • To join Art Clay Gold together or to mend a jointed area, use Art Clay Gold in paste form, which can be made as follows: Put Art Clay Gold in a small plate add a few drops of water and blend it evenly with something like a spatula
  • Shape as you wish using your fingers, a mold, etc. If Art Clay Gold becomes stiff to handle, place it in a ziploc bag, add a few drops of water, and knead it until it becomes soft.
Note: Remember that the finished piece shrinks 15%, so size your piece accordingly.
