There are sooo many different types of modeling materials
on the market. I am looking at an American arts and crafts supply
catalog and the quantity and variety of materials is staggering, AND
confusing to a beginner. I have never used any of these, so I would
appreciate it if someone would please suggest the names of products
with which I can start?
1) I would like to begin by practicing modeling, so I am
looking for modeling compounds that will not harden/are permanently
pliable, and that do not leave a residue on one's hands or clothing or
worksurface. Need to use my worksurface for other things.
2) Moving on to modeling in the real stuff: I do not intend to
bake the projects in my oven. There isn't a definitive word on the
safety of these chemicals, so I'll limit myself to those that air dry
3) Then I'd like to try the dry modeling compounds. I am
especially interested in the non-asbestos fiber powder mixes.
All replies are greatly appreciated!!!
