Experiment with paper clay

 I just bought a pack of japanese paper clay at POPULAR on Friday and was so eager to try it. But it actually got me rather disappointed. It was hard to shape and the texture of the paper pulp was rather odd to work with. Maybe its just me.
But I wouldn't say its bad. It probably just gives really different effect. Make the food look very rustic.

Another problem was that I couldn't tint the paper clay. I had to paint it after shaping it. Tinting it make it dry almost immediately, for some odd reason.

But from my experiments, I would say that paper clay is good for making breads and figurines. I'm still in the process of making azuzephre's pon and zi :DD
