Fiber Clay (Preferred)

 resources:

 

New Mexico Clay Company is the only company that I know that makes and sells the clay that I primarily use.  It is a  lowfire sculptural body that fits commercial glazes at 04-06. It contains 5% fine white sand and our superfine nylon fiber.

I really do like the fiber clay better than the paperclay for a few reasons:
*Attaches better wet to dry
*does not rot
*has great green strength
*doesn't crack much at all when sculpted around steel armature-this could revolutionize the way sculptors can work with ceramic clay.

I looked up the fumes and according to the reference I found, there is more hydrogen cyanide released when paper is burned than when nylon is burned. Still it stinks and must be vented when fired, but it works, for most peoples purposes, to leave unfired as well. Especially when they use the cold finishing techniques I use.
