Paper Clay: An epic guide to an epic craft material


hello and welcome to fiction forge thank
you so much for joining us for our very first episode today we’re going to show
you how to make an awesome crafting material full paper claim take the place
basically just like this amass a accepts its blended instead of added in layers
and additional ingredients are added to the mix in order to give it additional
properties which make it much better for sculpting there are many brands of paper clay
available to purchase both online and at well-stocked arts and crafts stores they
offer a high quality clay but are relatively expensive they even seem to
be some books available on the subject and look at some of the war some stuff
people have managed to pull up with them there are some pros it is cheap and easy
to make yourself the ingredients are not hard to come by it is non-toxic and safe
to handle it there hardens so there’s no need for a kill it has great strength to
weight ratio it is very easily shaped and colored it can be frozen for use
another time and now here are the cons it’s not weather proof without a
waterproof coating the weight stuff will rot not preserved or frozen the final
result will not be consistent if not mix well when made correctly you can make
some truly awesome stuff with this material there are some of our past
projects that are made almost entirely from the paper clay is what you’ll need to get started a
source of paper the finer the paper the finer the clay pre pulped paper starch
basic uses PVA glue some linseed oil to use as a preservative plaster of Paris a
drill and a paint stirrer attachment a blending one and water to add as you
make good so we got everything we need yet to make those paper clay so we’re
going to start by taking each of the ingredients individually adding them
into the bucket and then mixing them with the troll in the pastry so let’s
get started so once you get it with the sort of
points where you can grip it in an election keep shape then what we like to
do is move on to a secondary form of blending but in the form of this blender
warm we are mending without fighting gendered
stuff that is going to be perfect for stoking the fire until it was a drying
order and create a smooth finish without this trouble this yet is the next line
down stuff it will be perfect for being the lion’s share of the software and
then we just switch to the finer stuff and the skinny
all right so now we’re happy with the consistency and texture of our package
