Makins Clay is for Grown Ups too!
If you are an artist or crafter, do not dismiss these bright green packages as child's play. Makin's Clay is for grown-ups too. We're talking serious performance and reasonable price points. Makin's has a huge selection of tools available to make creating with clay fun and easy. We all know that creating art is much easier, if you have the RIGHT tools.
This clay is light weight, air dries and dries flexible. Makin's was a sponsor of the IMP "Complete the Puzzle" project for CHA Winter 2011 in LA, this past week so I was able to sit down and demonstrate quite a few of it's benefits and interactions with other products.
"Unfrogettable" Journal: my IMP project
This clay comes in a nice variety of colors and Makin's offers a color chart with a measuring tool to help you achieve color variations. The clay will also take many mediums like paint, ink, varnish, and pigment powders. After the clay dries, it's still quite versatile and thin sheets can be used with shape punches or dies.
For more information or to see a complete catalog, please see their website.
Truly, Makin's Clay has endless possibilities as an art medium.
