I've read with interest the posts on paper clay formulas. I'd like to try it
next semester at Brookdale Community College's, Lincroft, NJ ceramics lab
(shameless plug ). I have to write up a proposal for anything outside of
the Ceramic's programs normal program. I'm basicly a handbuilder and tend to
make masks and sculpture. What techniques does paper clay lend itself to?

Andy, the answer is any really. If the paper is well blended, and not more
than 2 to 3 gallons per 100lb batch of clay, it can even be thrown. It can
be mixed with porcelain, stone ware, or any clay you normally use. The
miracle clay!
