Bonus Video: Tips and Techniques for Making your Own Colored Clay

Posted On July 25, 2012 3 Comments

Today I am sharing a clip from Curt Benzle’s DVD Expanding Your Creative Palette with Colored Clay. In this clip, he gives tips on making colored clays from scratch. I have to admit, I haven’t dabbled much in this technique because it seemed like an such an effort to make the colored clay. But, as Curt explains, it is really not that bad, especially if you set yourself up with a segmented plaster drying bat. Easy Peasy!
