Perfect for Cardboard Props
By BearsRawr Cosplay
from Seattle, WA
Comments about Creative Paperclay:
I used it to finish a giant cardboard snowflake for a Snowstorm Sivir costume (a video game character) at PAX West (a video game convention). I was worried about the arms of the flake breaking off, but once I added the PaperClay and sanded it to perfection, this piece was rock solid. It lasted 2 days of crowds, bumping, waving around, rain, sun, everything! This stuff is magic. You need to shape it while forming/sand to size once it dries, so don't expect it to be instantly smooth like paper mache. But it's totally paintable and looks great.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Surprisingly tough when dried.
from Lake Elsinore, CA
This paper based clay gives my paper mache crafts a chance for wonderful detail. I am having so much fun with it. It air dries and can be painted.

creative paperclay, Best sculpting material when you do kiln
from Atlanta, GA
I used this material to create props for window and store displays at the boutique I work for. Repsonds like clay. Can be applied to almost anything for an armature with little shrinkage. No firing or baking. Dries hard with a lovely papery like finish. So many possibilities. I would also highly recommend for art teachers in school. Much better than traditional paper mache. If one builds an armature, where I find the creativity begins, Creative Paperclay can be rolled in thin slabs and smoothed with water. A little goes a long way.

creative paper clay is simply an amazing material.
With this material, it is all in creating the armature t to apply it too then use the clay as small slabs. . IT sculpts like clay but does not require a kiln to fire. Perfect for teaching in schools. I came across it in prop making for store windows. I am a clay artist but this make the task easier and could literally build in on to things without the shrinkage factor. The best part if something breaks off…you simply repair or patch with the paper clay.

Not for thick pieces of sculpture
Found that it works easily but you have to really work at blending in any additional amount or along seams because splits when drying. Right now have it in a silicone mold put in quite thickly (3/4" and thicker in pressure pints) and after 2 weeks can still feel moisture inside the mold. After so much time, I am trying to be really patient lest pieces next to mold on very inner surface are not sufficiently dry and would break off when mold is removed. Sooooo...do not yet know how it will hold up to the pressure of removing the mold. I assume because I see cracks at joint on the inside that the outside will show fractures along the same lines but am going to let it completely dry. Shrinks away from bottom of mold so I do not know how details will come out!

Nice Air Dry Clay (Especially for Children)
By Cheryl teaches hearing-impaired kids
from Salt Lake City, Utah
My second-grade students loved working with this clay. It worked way better than other things I've used over the years. It was easy for the kids to join pieces onto their project and the joined pieces would stay well. (Okay, a few fell off after they dried for 3 days, but I think that was a function of the students' abilities more than the clay's characteristics.) The students wished their projects could have dried in less time. When some of the pieces had not joined well we used hot glue to fix the problem. It seemingly worked well. Each child got one package. Their finished products were a nice size.
