I had a student do a large sculpture of an otter with it (wet set clay) It
shaped well and did what she wanted but when we soaked it to harden it it
got oozy oily and made cracks where they were not wanted. My guess is that
it was the size of the piece, Smaller is probably better. It did not take
paint all that well due to the oozy oil....
