Re: Achieving a smooth surface with plasticene

Thanks to all of you for sharing this information. I find this forum to be a real treasure of information.

I use Classic Clay and get so frustrated by all the little balls, and bumps that seem to be a characteristic of clay. It's fine in some places, but just looks messy in others, such as edges that need to be sharp. I had no idea what to use to help smooth some of these areas out. So far, it's been my fingers, which do nicely, but not the right "tool" for some places. I'll experiment with mineral spirits, alcohol, etc. and see which does the trick for my purpose.
