Michael's has "Creative Paper Clay" that is an air-dry clay that would be more similar the Silk Clay than polymer clay. Or you can always use Crayola Model Magic - love both of these.

I LOVE Birgit's cards and her clay pieces. The tutorial was sweet and simple and even I knew I could do that. Heehee! I was, however, puzzled about which kind of "clay" to buy here in the U.S. Thanks for suggesting options!

Heart Silk Clay alternative

Hi.

I am new to this, so hope this works.

I found a clay that sounds similar. It is a bake product but retains its flexible and rubbery texture after baking.
Sculpty SuperFlex Bake & Bend

Hope this helps

Definitely more like air dry clay. There are several brands available at Michaels. It is very light, oven bake clays are much too heavy. And much harder to knead and work with. Air dry clay is perfect for people with arthritic or weak hands or wrists.

Default Silk Clay Equivalent

Hi there, just a thought on the clay, the one that Birgit uses remains a bit flexible when dry. Here in Australia the equivalent is Vitrium Air-Dry Resin Clay, and after doing a bit of a search, it can be bought from:
firemountaingems...for those of you in the US.
The fact that it stays flexible allows for any movement in the card or when handling, so it should hold up well to posting, without damage.

I've used Delight brand air dry clay and it's wonderful. It doesn't stick to your fingers or work surface, it dries smooth - no cracking like many other brands do after dried, and shrinkage is minimal.

That's what I've used too, it dries very light, so it doesn't weigh down your card.
When working with it, it does feel like silk, so maybe it is very similar to what Birgit uses.
