Kato polyclay


Yesterday I played with Kato polyclay. Previosuly I had used Sculpey III for my polyclay needs. After working with the Kato, I am hooked! It is a much harder clay to work. It took a fair amount of rolling and working to get it conditioned. However, I loved how it held its shape. Also the clay mixed well. I used translucent and mixed varying amounts of the solid colors into it. When I baked the clay the shine was excelent. I really liked how it had a slight gloss. This was not true when I used translucent Sculpey III- it baked an all the shine dried up.

Here are a few clay faces made of Kato polyclay! I can't wait to work them up into some fantastic wire pendents!!!!
