About clay

I tried another air dry clay "Modena", this clay is be strong and water-resistance after dry. It would be good to make charm. Today, I report about clays of Modena and Grace (I usually use this clay), and compare with this two clays and Fimo soft.

Well, this photo is before put color in clays. People reading my blog would know about Fimo soft well than me, so I don't write detailed about it.
It couldn't show well in this photo, Modena is a little translucent, and Grace is a little white before put color in clay, and Grace is stretch and very soft than Modena. Modena is a little bit hard, but it's so soft more than Fimo soft. And twisted, Grace has twisted mark clearly but Modena hardly has mark. When make a shape, it can make easily Fimo soft, next easy make shape Modena and Grace.

I made miniature Stollen by using each clay one by one. (not used technique of copy this time.) Oh, it is different color only Fimo, but never mind. :P (this is for painting to test) Air dry clay have a characteristic of shrink about 10% after dry. I made same size each other when I started make those. Two stollen of air dry clay after dried was be a little small than stollen of Fimo soft. This photo is before put color on Stollen.  I guess Grace has characteristic of swell a little bit, so stollen of Grace looks like softly. But the texture of Modena and Grace are not different.
I guess Fimo soft is best that to make detailed texture (like a sand) on the surface. 

After put color. Stollen of Fimo soft looks like heavy, It seems that's German bread!  :-9 And other Stollen looks same, don't understand how different each other. But these seems just real bread.  :-9  Shape of every Stollen made this time seems real existence. 

If I was asked which clay I like, I like Grace. Because I am used to this clay. :) I want to use Modena to make charm or fruit etc., and also Fimo use to make charm. But Fimo is very hard to me. :,-(  After all, I like Japanese soft clay. hehehe

Thank you for reading! 


I listed new works on Etsy today.

Cupcakes of FIMO

I tried FIMO work, I used this clay for the first time.  It's very hard clay and very different clay that I use usually. I made charm, cupcakes with whipped cream and smile cookie, those are large than 1:12 scale. Oh, cute! hehehe I guess it's good work. :)

And I made miniature baskets. I listed these on Etsy

News :D

I hardly could make miniature last month. Why? Because I had prepared to open my web shop. :) I already prepared  my miniature works to Etsy, but I had a hard time to write description in English XO, besides I still had any questions about some things on Etsy. But I could settled those by wonderful helping.  :,D I am grateful her! Thank you sooo much!

And at last... I opened my shop on Etsy. :-))) If you have some times, please come there. There are not a lot of merchandise yet, but I will list little by little.
