Hello and welcome to Twitchy Witchy Studios!
I would like to thank you for taking time to view my blog, and I hope that you enjoy my art work!

I found a new clay recipe! :)

Ever since I've been sculpting, I've been trying to find a less expensive clay for me to use. I still enjoy using paper mache, but prefer the smoother texture of clay. I recently found a site of an amazing artist by the name of, Jonni Good, who makes the most amazing sculptures. Her website is Ultimate Paper Mache. If you are interested, please visit her site, she has very helpful tips for working with anything paper mache. One of her recipes for paper mache clay, and is easy to make! Here's the link to her paper mache clay recipe: Paper Mache Clay Recipe.
I recently purchased the items for the recipe, and found it to be a bit tasking at first (having never tried anything like it before), but I prevailed! It was quite sticky, and a bit hard to work with (having only worked with polymer clay), but once you get the hang of it, it's a pretty good clay!  It dries hard, you can use sandpaper to smooth out the rough spots, and drill through it as well!
{I must add, you need a butter knife or an artist's palette knife, to smooth it on, otherwise, it sticks to your hands and fingers. I personally use a palette knife, it works best for me, as well as clay sculpting tools.}
I will be posting my sculptures  (using this clay recipe) soon! =^..^=
