A specially formulated, homemade modeling clay with all the properties specific to animation. Color-fast, flexible, smooth, non-melting. Can be heated and mixed, but is not really designed to do that. Water soluble, but smooth with oil only. Available in Matte, Waxy, and Extra Waxy.

It IS! :) I'm working out the hardness and packaging details, but each one will be about 6 oz with a volume of close to 9 oz.

Jokingly: 

I make the stuff in a secret cavern underground where the main ingredient is excreted by a rare caterpillar. The amount of clay per package would be larger, but I can only get so much of his special slime each season and the little guy has Fall and Winter off.

Hahaaha, you're funny Don.

Sounds awesome, I would love to experiment with some when it's ready!
Comment by Don Carlson on July 5, 2014 at 9:10pm

Me too! It's wonderful to sculpt with.

Awesome, Don! I'm digging the name "Puppet Putty", too.

Comment by Don Carlson on July 11, 2014 at 12:24am

Thanks Mike. :) This stuff is fun, but the heat is killing me. It's slowing me down a little more than I'd like. Ordering the molds soon and I have a guy doing the packaging design.
