Hi all! Anyone know of a U.S. equivelant to NewPlast plasticine? I've got Van Aken Plastilina from Michaels and it melts under the lights. Anyone had any experience with Fimo or CartoonClay?

 

Also, looks like I can get NewPlast from animationsupplies.net if I really want it, but they charge 25 euros heavy item fee for like three pounds of it. Maybe that's just the international shipping rate, I don't know. Anyone know of a U.S. retailer for it?

Thanks Don! That was really informative! Yeah definitely if I could make Van Akin work a little better for me then I'll do that before ordering something overseas. I'll post an update when I get the characters made. Much obliged! :D

Cool! I'm writing a book about  clay with Marc Spess. It will have a lot more detailed information as well as hints on where to buy the stuff.

I'm really late but hey, Fimo wont work. It gets harder and breaks fast. I wouldnt know any alternatives for you because i dont even have other clay i can use for my own stuff. :( I cant even find the other stuff you said.

Wow, i'm stupid... didnt see the other reply's :( Forget this plz

NEVER!!!!

Hey guys, I just lucked out today...I was at a thrift store and on the bottom shelf -I found 4

5 lb. blocks of jolly king plasticine for 3.99 each! That's less than a 1/4 of the price if you buy it from there website! If someone lives in Littleton, Co...I left you one-at the Goodwill store at

Coal Mine Road and Sheridan next to the hardware store & King Soopers.
