As for the clay, I am only guessing here. I
would think that it's not dry, and if it were, you would need to add an
oil-based liquid in tiny amounts. Other options would be to heat it and
knead it when it is very soft. It may just need to be reconditioned. You
could also mix it with a very soft plasticine like Modeling Pal on page 430.

Dear Judy,

You are right, the plasticine is not dry, but it is very hard. It is
difficult to soften it with the warmth of my hands. How would you recommend
heating it?

Thanks for your response. Also, thanks for the glue ideas.

Hope this helps! Judy <>

Dear Colleagues,

I have two questions.

What is the best adhesive to use when gluing cellophane to paper?


Can really old, hard plasticine be softened? If so, how (quickest and
easiest way).

Thank you in advance! I find comfort in the fact that I have access to so
many art professionals!
