Play-Doh vs. Modeling Clay

Play-Doh vs Modeling Claywritten by Art for Kids hub
Our kids love Play-Doh (And as parents we do too)! Not only is it fun for them (and us) to play with, but it helps calm them down during an "emotional crisis." You know the ones I'm talking about. Well, if you haven't tried using an art activity to bring your kid back to "reality" try one. You may be surprised.
Anyways, sculpting with clay has always been a favorite of mine. As a kid I remember using Play-Doh a lot, but I also remember the first time my parents bought modeling clay... I thought I had died and gone to heaven. It's so much better!
Play-Doh is great:
Especially for kids around 2 years oldIts extremely soft, perfect for little fingersWhen it dries out it's a little easier to clean upThere's a lot of toys you can use with Play-Doh
Personal Play-Doh side note: Why do they make it smell so bad? Do they add that intentionally, hoping that kids won't want to eat it? I think they still d…

[Press release:]
Asya Geisberg Gallery is pleased to present Lauren Clay, “Windows and Walls”, a solo exhibition of sculpture, mounted on a wallpaper installation that covers the gallery walls. Previously featured in “Monochromatic” at AGG, Clay’s work has become increasingly complex, and in “Windows and Walls” the marbleized wallpaper and biomorphic sculpture intertwine visually and conceptually. Originating as white, textured twists on the angular rigidity and slickness of Minimalism, Clay’s sculptures adopt pronounced references to space, architecture, and the body, and add high color and detailed curlicues. In tandem, her wallpaper acquires a double layer of illusionistic yet improbable spaces fl…

How to Use Paper Clay?

Written by 👉👉 How to Use Paper Clay?
Paper clay is a clay that is mixed with shredded paper or other fibers. These fibers create a very strong and versatile clay that is also lightweight. It's perfect for building ceramics of any size, including very large pieces that would be extremely heavy with standard clay. You can buy ready mixed paper clay at any good ceramics store or make it yourself.
Extra-Strength Clay Paper clay is made by mixed regular clay with paper pulp. The paper fibers create a strong structure within the clay. This"capillary system" also transfers moisture easily and evenly throughout the clay.
Paper clay can be made with a variety of different clays, including terracotta, porcelain, earthenware, and stoneware. Though paper pulp is the most common and easiest fiber to work with, clay can also be mixed with any other cellulose fiber to create the same effect.
If you make your own paper clay, you can have complete control over the amount of fiber added to ach…
