Martha's Crafter's Clay

Martha Stewart Crafts recently debuted this great product called Crafter's Clay. These beautiful flowers were crafted by the clay founder's daughter, Yukiko Miyai. She has had a lifetime of experience working with the clay—hence the incredible life-like flowers—but what's great about what Martha's done, is she's setup kits with silicone molds to make working with the clay super easy.  You can read more about it HERE.
By just using molds, Yukiko showed Martha how she created this wreath. How easily the colors mix and the texture of the clay are probably my two favorite features of the clay. Oh, did I mention that this wreath probably weights less than a couple quarters?!? Because the clay is mainly paper based, it is extremely light weight! Also non-toxic and air dries!

Watch how natural Yukiko is with the clay:

  1. Wow! That's pretty amazing! Our experience with air dry clay it that it becomes very brittle and cracks. Looking forward to trying the new Martha's clay.
