Making Your Own Molds and Molding with Paper Clay Tutorial By Laura Carson of Artfully Musing Blog

One of my dreams is to learn how to make paper clay heads for goddess dolls using paper clay.  So, I can't tell you how thrilled I was to see that  Laura Carson had a wonderful tutorial on her Artfully Musing blog showing you how to make your own molds and how to mold with paper clay.  I am thrilled and can hardly wait to learn how to do this.  Have you always wanted to learn how to do this?  If so, here's your chance.

Here's what Laura had to say about her tutorial:  This tutorial walks you through the steps of making a mold and then molding items using paper clay. You can make a mold from metal or plastic objects and from rubber stamps. The mold you make can be used with a variety of materials including UTEE, wax, soap, and air clay or clay requiring baking. The mold can stand up to the heat of materials such as melted wax. For the purposes of this tutorial I’m going to focus on using the paper clay with the mold because for me it is the most common use molds and it doesn’t require the use of a melting pot or oven.

Laura's Bio: After retiring from the computer software industry where I spent my career designing, building and marketing software, I needed a creative outlet. A few years ago I discovered Mixed Media Art and have had a love affair ever since. I’ve taught classes in Altered Books, Handmade Books, Collage Art and Mix Media Art. I currently design for Alpha Stamps and I enjoy trading in various art groups. Starting this blog is a way of sharing my art and the wonderful art I have received from others. I specialize in very detailed multi-layered and textured pieces. I live in Anthem Arizona with my husband Kevin, dog Sandy, and cat Tigger.
