For a while, I've been playing with plasticine to make some sculptures. I particularly like the fact that it is easy to manipulate, join together and can be revisited easily at any time without hassle. However, I've found that it can be a little too vulnerable to damage, sagging and falling apart.
I've had a play with some water based clay I got from my local craft shop, but found that it shrank and cracked a bit upon drying.
Could anybody recommend a good alternative to sculpt with?
I've heard many mentions of products such as Sculpey and the like, yet I have never used any of these products myself.
While I'm still working on the sculpt, it'd be nice to have the flexibility to easily come and go without any major problems. Then maybe it could be good if I could finalize the sculpture somehow to reduce the risk of any unwanted movement or damage.
Obviously, I'm a novice, so any information would be great.
Thank you very much
