IOD paper clay is an air dry medium, and one of our favorites. Like most paper pulp based air dry clays, some shrinking, warping, and cracking is inherent. We like these qualities for a distressed, authentically vintage look. Our favorite way to apply moulded pieces is to remove them from the mould while still moist, and adhere to the surface with Tacky Glue so it conforms well. For vertical surfaces, use a piece of low tack tape to hold it in place so it doesn’t slide.
New and improved paper clay that’s perfectly designed for the IOD moulds. This super soft, air dry clay comes in a larger 14 ounce size. Our beautifully soft and pliable air paper dry clay works beautifully with our Decor Moulds, like Classical Elements.
TIP: When we use air dry clay for casting, we love to glue them down while wet, right out of the mould. Inevitably, when they dry they crack a bit here and there because of shrinkage. We embrace this and use it to our vintagey advantage, BUT, if there are any that you aren’t pleased with, simply back fill them with a bit more clay after they are dried, and give em another coat of chalk paint, easy peasy. Here we show you how, and also play with a color wash to pop that dimension.
See how easy it is to use!
