Already for one months since I learn and practice how to work with paper clay material. The result is great, I kind addicted to it ♥☺. For the first time maybe I have some difficulties to shape it, but HEY! PRACTICE MADE PERFECT! Now I made jewelry beads and pendant from it, I also made some paper clay dolls. I thing it can be good for jewelry pendant too ☺. Paper clay is air dries material (no baking!) it can be molded, sculpted and shaped. You can made the paper clay by your self or you can just buy already pack paper clay at your crafts shop near you.
