You will need
- - sculptural clay;
- - hot water or the heating device;
- - machine oil or petroleum jelly;
- - aluminum or steel wire.
Purchase in a specialty store packaging sculptural clay, for example, the production of "lenstroykeramika" or "Gamma". Usually the package contains about a kilogram of sufficiently hard material. In most cases, the clay is well kneaded with the hands, but in some, for example, when you have got the material more solid type, need artificial heating.
Chip the right amount of clay and warm it up under hot water or put on the heater. You can also make shavings using a knife and a little warm water, then knead by hand. The heated piece can be connected with cold mass. In most cases they are well combined.
Do not heat the whole box, if not going to use it immediately. If you keep the mass in a heated state long enough, it loses its plastic properties, as the components evaporate, giving it softness. The clay becomes hard and begins to break down.
Please note that after initial heating the mass is well wrinkled hands and saves plastic properties. He does not stick to hands and tools, well bonded to the clay is not heated, and retains its shape at room temperature.
Recover the plastic properties of clay peregretogo: heat the mass to a liquid state and add the machine oil or petroleum jelly (to give hardness, add a lot of talcum powder or potato flour).
Purchase aluminum or steel wire for the big tracks. They are needed for the frame, without it the sculpture would not hold the shape, may settle or swum round. Do not use copper wire because it breaks down the components contained in the clay.
Use for tiny jobs that require a jewelry clarity and fineness of detail of a more solid clay type, for example, the production company "Gamma". Cut the desired amount of briquettes and heat in hot water or the heater. Do not expose the mass of secondary heating. Note that when modeling miniature mass needs more in cooling than in heating.
Advice 2: How to remove modeling clay from Wallpaper
How great it is when the child from the earliest years drawn to beautiful art. I think so many parents, only to find that where does this all this "art". The worst thing is when it the main working materials are Wallpapers and clay. But, fortunately, remove the clay with your Wallpaper and not have to resort to plywood.

A clean paper towel or white sheet of office paper tightly attach to the place on the Wallpaper where there is clay. Warm up this place with the help of a hair dryer running in average mode. Under the influence of hot air the clay "melts" and adheres to the paper, thus leaving your Wallpaper.
After you remove the cloth you find on Wallpaper only a grease spot left from the clay. Gently treat it with small amounts of money for removing greasy stains and warm water. The resulting wet spot on the Wallpaper dry with a hair dryer or wait for a little while, till it dries on their own.
