The clay is available in 17 colors,including the spectral colors, neutrals,metallics, pearl and translucent. I do mostlysculptural work, so my experience with theclay is within that realm. The clay is difficultto condition initially, but once it has beenconditioned it is wonderful to work with andreconditions easily.The colors are intense and mix well. Themetallic and pearl have more mica thanany other brand I’ve used. I have beenmixing the clay in equal amounts withPremo and getting very good results andsome great colors.The clay is wonderful to work with; sharpdetails are easily achieved. The clay is notsticky or hard to handle at all and stays firmthrough heavy handling. The clay seems tonot take fingerprints easily. I have donetransfers with the clay and they seem crispercompared to other clays with the sametransfer.There are some minor problems: the claydoes seem to have a stronger odor.
