This is exactly the kind of aesthetic I've always hoped to see in Lego-style animation. Look how SMOOTH it is! After studying it frame by frame, it is apparent that this is not 30fps on a mix of ones…Continue

Don,
I used to animate with a clay that is manufactured by Caran d' Ache . It doesn't come in as many colors as the Van Aken brands, its waxy texture holds up much better under hot lights, and it cleans up a lot easier because the dyes in the clay don't run as badly as the other brands .

I have not found Caran D'Ache clay in stores, but did see their other art supplies.

I do know how to modify Van Aken to get the properties you're looking for. Spent a year studying clay formulas and got it down pretty good. I'll send you a private message.
