  1. I bought a 25 lb. block of paper clay for experimentation. After using half of the block, I would like to save what is left for additional experiments based on the results of firing and glazing. Of course mold is a problem. Has anyone who has worked with paper clay allowed it dry, break the up, add water and work it into a ball ready for a few more projects? I was thinking of rolling the remaining clay into slabs, let them dry and later when I'm ready reconstitute the clay.

I have WED (Walt Disney modeling clay - wet) with me that I thought would use for this project initially. Reading lots of posts about making your own paper clay and the advantage of green strength by using paper I am inspired to try making paper clay. I have green blow in cellulose from Lowe
  5. Hi everyone, I'd like to make my own paper clay and have read several recipes but I'd like to hear from anyone who has actually made it. What's the best type of paper to use and why? Thank you.
