I'm trying out Sculpey's Studio Clay. It comes in mouth-watering colors and the ads describe it as having a "suede-like" finish. Working with it (aside from the soft fuzzy feel of the material, which is lovely) is a bit like working with mush, but I found that mixing it with 1/3 Kato clay firms it up enough to make it workable for jewelry.
These are the first two pendants. I like them, but I'm still trying to get things perfect. Clay is forgiving...but there always seems to be nick or fingerprint that all my careful looking doesn't catch.
