Homemade Paper Clay

Previously I wrote that I would give an evaluation of the new (to me) paper clay formula as an alternative to commercial products (such as Celluclay) using the exact ingredients (toilet paper, linseed oil etc.) so here it is:

  • Spreads easily
  • Molds readily to any desired shape!
  • A fine texture can be achieved
  • Tends to separate as it dries (any gaps will become larger)
  • Has a tendency to crack if applied too thinly
Although I tried to stick to the formula, some of the negative results may be due to the proportions I used or my inexperience. More experimentation is needed.
