Default MS crafter's clay

Just wondering if any of you have used this and if so, how did you use it on your card? Did you paint it or anything? I think they would look cool if they were made to look like charms or metal. I just ordered the nature starter kit.

I'm eager to see responses to the OP's question. I'm tempted to try the stuff, but I figure it's probably a little fragile for sending through the mail, so not terribly practical for many cards. I'm still tempted, though.

There are some good videos online, and you don't need to paint it. You take a big hunk of white, and a tiny bit of whatever color(s) you want, and mix it all up in your hands. For example, white and a tiny bit of blue and red to get purple, etc.

Go to this page, and you'll find a link to a video:

Clay Flowers - Martha Stewart Crafts by Material

Tempted . . . .

Default MS crafter's clay

I'm also tempted to buy this product. It looks like fun to use and the results are pretty amazing. I have the heirloom set on my wishlist.

Yikes, another crafting tools I (must have/need (not really)/want) :

Best, Mollyz

heres another video link:
CHA 2012 - Martha Stewart Crafts Crafter's Clay is Not Your Regular Clay! - YouTube

HSN carries it as well, and has videos.

looks like fun stuff, would probably need bubble envelopes or clear boxes to mail cards made with it tho, so it doesn get squished............

Lindsay (The Frugal Crafter) made a recipe for paper clay: DIY Hybrid Art Clay {crafty recipe} Thefrugalcrafter’s Weblog

I love to work in clay. When I was younger my Father used to make my own clay with a similar recipe.

January's CHA releases the clay and MS molds was the one I couldn't wait for. My Michael's just got MS clay products in. I think the clay is nice and the molds are pretty. Once I held them in my hands it's not a product for me. I can make similar molds. I thought the clay was pricey, least for me. I think the products are great way to get into paper clay art though.

i had a little time to play today, i love it!

it feels like silly putty, LOL

now, if you like to sit and make ALOT of something QUICKLY, then i would say you may not like this. it is a bit time consuming.

because, you must mix your own colors, which, for me at least, took a bit.
once i got the color i liked then it went fast tho.

the results are very pretty, i have a few pieces drying now, so will see how they do after they have dried.

right now i will say that the only negative to it i can find, is time. i would say its one of those "rainy day" projects

i only snipped a small corner off the packages of clay, so as not to expose them to too much air, and now i also have them in a ziplock with a wet washcloth......so we shall see how the stuff stores........


oh! and heres a giggle for you, the back of the box says "do no eat clay" ROFLMBO, flashback to paste in kindergarten, bwa ha ha...............

anywho, so far these are my thoughts!

would love to hear from others on it!!

sempermom,
Those look really good! I can't wait for my kit to come. I used to make pins with paperclay, way back in the early 90's when I first discovered stamping, and this reminds me of it. The detail of the molds is what impressed me. I think this will be fun to mess with! Thanx for taking the time to share.

what adhesive did you use for the pins??

the heirloom kit has a very pretty cameo in it, and i was thinking pins, and ribbon necklaces.

and, i was thinking the small circle frame would be pretty for monograms!

the molds are very detailed and i was amazed at how well the clay picks them up.

Does it air-dry or do you have to bake it like polymer clay?

The clay air dries.

I don't remember what I used for adhesive, probably hot glue tho.

I LOVE it! Bought all the molds. I will say that the clay dries out quickly, so be sure to wrap it up tight and secure so it doesnt harden while being stored.

This looks very interesting! Does anyone know the sizes of the shapes in the "flower garden" set? Also, how would these shapes hold up if they were mailed on a card? Has anyone tried yet? Thanks so much!

i have the Heirloom and Nature sets and the small flower is 1", the rose and daisy are roughly 1 3/4", and the cameo is 1 1/2x2. one leaf is about 1/4" and the other maybe a 1/2"

i would gues the flowers to be about 1/4" deep too, so a good thickness, and would require extra postage

so far no details were lost in drying, nor did they shrink.

they feel like fun foam now that they are dry! i would imagine they would travel safely through the mail, altho i havent sent anything out yet!


i havent tried to stick them to anything yet, so no clue which adhesive to use........anyone try yet?? maybe glassy glaze?? fabric glue??

i am also wondering if i add a button as a flower center while wet, if they will stay put once the clay dries........

anyways, would love to hear more from others!!
