Buying clay for first time

Recommended Posts

I'm making a old style claymation movie type project, but I am not sure what type of clay to buy. My initial thought was low fire clay, but now I'm worried about the wire that will need to go into it for structure or even what wire to get. Please help.

I was going to recommend a non-hardening oil-based clay like Klean Klay. Only I googled it and learned that Klean Klay is no longer available. But a company called Van Aken is selling alternatives called Protolina and Plastilina. 


I used Klean Klay for a project about 10 years ago. If I was doing a claymation I think it would work great. Clays that need to be fired would not work for claymation, due to the drying and shrinking.
