My first ever attempt at mosaic, easy when you have such great instructions (by the wonderful Lara LeReveur)! I've used Makins clay to make the tiles. I'm really beginning to like this clay now that I have a handle on how it behaves. Bakable polymer clay, air dry clay, ceramic clay, silver clay...they all have totally different properties and each needs it's own specialized treatment, each has it's own learning curve. Makins air dry clay excels in 'handle-ability' (yes, it's a word!). I much prefer using it to sculpt with than any of the bakable polymer clays. It 'tiled' up easily for this project too!
