:wave: I am busy trying to make more clay items and here are some works in progress.

Here I revisited the Sculpey Mold Maker, and this time I found it to be much more successful. This is the same box I bought several years ago, and now that it has aged a bit I find it a LOT easier to work with.
I wanted to attempt making some Taiyaki, [link] so I made some attempts out of green scrap clay, I also experimented making some 'fish scale' molds. So the green items above are made with scraps I had laying around. The larger more detailed fish was pretty cute, so I used it in the sculpey Mold maker medium (seen on the right.) At the bottom, I made an attempt at a 3D fish charm using the mold.

I am pretty happy with how it turned out! (Although it is a beefy charm and much too heavy to be an earring or anything like that.)

The fish at the top of the screen is one I made in the summer for a local art show poster, seen here: [link]

Thank you for viewing! :aww:

Thank you :aww:
This stuff is super soft, like bubblegum. The directions say to put the clay in the freezer before using it, which is what I did when I used it years ago, this time I also rolled it out on some paper to let the plasticizers out a bit.

This stuff also helps bring old dry clay to life. A tiny little ball of it was all I needed to bring a semi-dried out block back from the dead.

Thank you. ^_^ It was fun trying to make a 3D object from a 2D mold.
