Tips when using OZ Clay:Learn More
– OZ Clay air dries with very little shrinkage so it can go over armatures such as newspaper balls, wire and foil to construct larger forms without using a large quantity of clay.
– Small amounts of water will improve the clay’s plasticity if it is too hard or cracks while modelling.
– Untouched OZ clay should be stored in a cool place in an airtight container.
– Left over clay should be stored in an airtight container separate from untouched clay to prevent contamination.
– Allow models to dry slowly by partially covering with a plastic bag and slowly removing the bag more and more over a few days. This will help prevent cracking.
– Paint with acrylic paint

Important features of Paper Magiclay White:
- Free from wheat, gluten and wheat derived products
Colouring Magiclay (Wet clay): Easily colour white Magiclay with paint, dye and markers. Just add a small amount of pigment and mix through prior to modelling.
Colouring (Dry) Once Magiclay is dry, its surface can be painted or printed on.
Blending & Marbling Colours Mix colours together to expand your colour palette. Add white to lighten and brighten colours. For marbled effects, lightly mix colours.
Model Making: Paper Magiclay will bond wet to dry – just press on a surface, or press parts together and it will hold; no adhesives, joining techniques or special tools are required. It can be pulled, stretched, sprung back, rolled, and can be used in combination with other materials. This is why it is ideal clay for model making and popular with all age levels.
Building Up Surface Press Magiclay directly onto canvas or paper to build up a surface on which to paint.
Creating Forms Create an armature as a base & mould Magiclay over the top. Magiclay can be smoothed out and finer details can be added.
Use as a canvas: Emboss and imprint designs and patterns into the surface. When dry, Magiclay can be stitched into.
Shaping & Finishing a Form Magiclay can be applied to an object to create a unique form. Once sealed, alternate between sanding and painting to build up a polished and smooth surface. Varnish to finish.
Modelling Techniques and Skills Using Paper Magiclay White
Take a golf ball size piece of Magiclay.
Hands as Tools: with different parts of the hands, try squeezing, twisting, rolling, pinching, tearing/pulling, pressing to make different shapes; try joining and smoothing a surface. Use these techniques and skills to make different parts of one or two of the subjects in Step 1.
Using Tool Set: create different lines, textures and patterns. Explore how these could be used on different parts of a particular subject e.g.the indentations created with the blade looking part of the tool could look like the veins on a butterfly wing, or the “cup” marks could add texture to clothes.
Using Other Tools: try cutting, trimming and fringing with a pair of scissors. Find items that could be used as tools eg a fork could create repetitive indentations
