I was using Klean Clay, which was okay, but I understand the manufacturer is no longer in business. No sulphur, oil-based.

I prefer something gray. Is there a particular brand you like?

+1 for Monster Clay. I recently picked up about 40 lbs and it is awesome. Holds detail very well yet its fairly easy to soften it up when you want. Can be smoothed and worked easily. Really awesome stuff.

Super Sculpey Firm - Chavant Med or Hard. Chavant takes a little to get
used to because it can be a little sticky if you just try to move the clay
around, but if you like to carve on it like I do then it's pretty cool stuff.

Neither of them contain sulfer, so they're good for mold making.

Chavant is great, I use Goof Off or Goo Gone to smooth-really easy!

I use the cheap stuff: Van Aaken can be found anywhere and not only does it do the job I need it to do, it does it swimmingly.

Super sculpey firm for me too.. I mix in a small amount of regular super sculpey, if find it makes it a bit nicer to work with.

I'd like to give monster clay a try tho... Do you want a hardened piece when finished?

shipping on clay is always a killer , esp with Monster clay . try local places to cut your cost down . Essentially it's all about the artist and what they can do with whatever clay they have . Great sculptors can make works from playdoh . Now that would be a great sculptor contest,
