Well what a lot of stuff I have been finding out about lately! Just
thought I would share a couple of things.
I FINALLY got my hands on some Premo. The store from which I purchased
it seems to be enjoying it's seeming Kansas City Area monopoly by
charging an arm and a leg for it. But I did pick up two blocks and I
found it to be just dandy! Right out of the pack it feels like it's
going to be far too soft to really sculpt with. But then once I
actually started using it, it seems to combine the best of sculpey III
and Fimo. It's soft like sculpey III but seems to respond to my tools
much like Fimo. If I can get it cheap enough in bulk, I might switch
from Super Sculpey.
Also some side notes, I finally got that artists maniken I have been
wanting. It's the perfect size and has already helped me in getting my
proportions down better. In Battle Clad Barbie news, I found something
called Crayola Wet Set Clay. Allegedly one sculpts what they want and
the clay will harden if submerged in cool water for a period of 4 to
10 hours. I built up a simple bit of armor on a knock off barbie and
she is in her own little isolation tank even as I type. I'll come
clean tomorrow about how the experiment went.
Oh and it's snowing like crazy here in Northeastern Kansas. Weather
folks say the biggest snow in 10 years!
Thanks for taking time out to read my little missives.
Happy Claying and God Bless!
