Furthering my investigations into paper as a material I sourced a wonderful paper maché clay recipe from Ultimate Paper Maché, a great site for paper maché know-how. I did adapt the recipe somewhat to Australian products but other than that I followed their recipe to a fault.
The result was an amazing air-dried clay. Once dry it can be sanded to an almost porcelain-perfect finish. It holds even the finest of detail well and is very refined and strong.
Here then are a few images showing my investigations with this homemade clay recipe.
This clay has so much potential, I will definitely be using it again.
