Traditional pottery clay mixed with cellulose fibre. This increasingly popular and forgiving medium offers a multitude of benefits. Ideal for classroom situations. Our range covers five different paper clays, allowing you to achieve fine detail and surface texture. Suitable for all hand applications and can even be thrown on the wheel. The tiny fibres are barely visible and may be burnished smooth with a finger, rubber rib or stone.
A fine white plastic clay. This clay is remarkably strong for earthenware fired temperatures, making it an excellent choice for domestic production. A versatile clay for throwing small to large items, as well as all hand applications.
- GREEN STRENGTH The knitting together of the paper fibres adds considerable strength when dry. This added strength is a onus when coping with rough handling and misadventure when transporting.
- JOINING AT ANY STAGE Best joined at firm leather hard stage, with care wet paper clay can be successfully joined to dry and vice versa by scratching and gluing with paper clay slurry. Reinforce with coils where possible.
- REPAIRS Breakages are easily repaired by simply joining with paper clay slip. Should cracks appear, putty crack with more paper clay. This can also be successful even after the bisque firing.
