Working With Castin' Craft Pigments and EasySculpt®

Creating your own colors of clay is easy when you combine EasySculpt® Epoxy Clay with Castin' Craft Opaque Pigments.

Visually measure equal amounts of “A” and “B” components, this can be done by forming the clay into balls of equal size.

Press, fold and blend the two balls until there is a uniform color with no ribbons or marbling.

To add color: You can do this by simply adding acrylic or oil based artist paints, liquid pigments, pigment powders, metallic powders, etc.. Always mix “A” & “B” components together thoroughly before adding colors.  Add the paint or pigment sparingly until you've achieved the desired color and intensity

I divided the mixed clay into 5 balls and rolled each one out.

Using my craft mat as a palette, I squeezed out pigment to mix with the EasySculpt®.
As you can see I have puddles of white, blue, yellow, blue+white, and yellow+white.

I made a cane and then distributed the clay into different molds and rolled some out to use with my stamps.

It's so easy to cast with these molds. 
And with these molds you don't need to use Mold Release.

Before you handle clay, and especially if you want to stamp into it, 
you need to sprinkle some talcum powder on your surface 
to prevent the stamp from sticking to the clay. It works like a charm.
